Norton Junction

The towpath is on the wrong side at Norton Junction, does it change sides at Crick Tunnel; if so it needs a way of depiction.

Not sure what you mean. Leaving Norton Junction going up towards Foxton the towpath is on the right hand side and it runs on the right hand side all the way past Watford Locks. -- Steve

Yes, but the map indicates there is a tow-path on the left hand side which crosses [Norton Junction Bridge No 10] and then [Norton Junction Bridge No 1] which is not indicated on the gazetteer map. - Shultzy

There probably is, but not sure if you'll persuade Nick to create some new graphics for this case - basically we need a changeline bridge that doesn't change the towpath side. - Steve

Wikipedia has a page about Norton Junction

Worcestershire Parkway (Regional Interchange) is a proposed new railway station to be built near Norton, Worcester, England. The project is currently enjoying renewed interest, and the business case and technical development work is currently being undertaken by and for Worcestershire County Council. A new station on this site was first suggested in the 1970s, but it was rejected because of cost.

The station would be where the Cotswold and Cross Country Lines cross. It has been said that Worcester Shrub Hill would have to close when the new station opens, to justify the passenger numbers. The construction of the station would give Worcester long distance Cross Country trains that normally do not stop, bypassing Worcester. Based on the current timetable, it has been deemed feasible for a reasonable service to Birmingham Bristol and London to operate from this site.

As Worcester Parkway would be situated on the Cross Country Mainline, it would provide services (every hour roughly) to Edinburgh, Manchester and Nottingham. Birmingham every 20 minutes. Other services to Bristol (every 30 mins), Exeter and Plymouth. Services to Swindon, Cardiff, Maestag and London Paddington. There would also be occasional services to Penzance. If Worcester Parkway was situated next to the Cotswold Line, it would provide services to Hereford and London Paddington, this would be the line that would be used to provide a shuttle train to and from Worcester Foregate Street to provide a regular service into Worcester City Centre (like the shuttle train from Stourbridge Town to Stourbridge Junction). The construction of Worcester Parkway would see the closure of Worcester Shrub Hill (currently has sufficient parking). Worcester Parkway would have multi-storey parking to compromise the lose of parking at Shrub Hill, this would be essential as it would be needed for long distance journeys made by passengers.

The development of the Parkway at Norton will lead to a large boost in the Worcester economy. It could also see a large housing development in Norton due to the great geographical location of it being commutable to Birmingham and Cheltenham.[citation needed]

Worcestershire County Council have set aside £3 million for park and ride facilities at the station.

In June 2008 it was announced that the station was unlikely to be built for many years. Following this, in October 2008 an e-petition was set up on the No 10 website calling for a Worcestershire Parkway.

The Third Worcestershire Local Transport Plan (LTP3) cites Worcestershire Parkway Regional Interchange as the top transport priority for Worcestershire. It is also listed in the West Midlands Regional Spatial Strategy as a Sub Regional Priority, and features in Policy T6 - Strategic Park and Ride.

Worcestershire County Council is currently coordinating the development of the business case. An outline business case was developed by Laing Rail in March 2006, which concluded in favour of the development of Worcestershire Parkway Regional Interchange.

The revised business case was submitted to the Department for Transport's Rail Office, who gave their formal support to the project in 2012.

More recently, the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership has sought to actively support the County Council to press Train Operating Companies interested in tendering for the Greater Western Franchise to support investment in this scheme.

In February 2013, Worcestershire County Council submitted a bid to the Network Rail managed New Stations Fund for £7 million to fund the first phase of development of Worcestershire Parkway.

Unfortunately, the DFT funding application was turned down in July 2013. The county council are on record stating that the interchange remains a vital project and alternative funding is being sought.
