Wikipedia has a page about Norton Junction

Worcestershire Parkway (Regional Interchange) is a proposed new railway station to be built at a rural location 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 and also by a private developer who has a rival scheme. A new station on this site was first suggested in the 1970s, but it was rejected because of cost, currently estimated at £22 million.

The station would be located where the Cotswold and Cross Country lines cross. This station would allow long-distance Cross Country trains, which normally do not stop at either of the current Worcester stations, to stop at the new station, which would be a few miles from the outskirts of 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, though the level of demand for a train service from Norton to Birmingham has not yet been firmly established.

On the Cotswold Line, there would be trains to Hereford and to Oxford, Reading and London.

On the Cross-Country line there would be northbound trains to Birmingham, Derby, Sheffield, Leeds, York, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Manchester and Nottingham. Fast trains to Birmingham would be every 30 minutes, and there would be a stopping service, generally every hour. Southbound trains towards Cheltenham and Bristol would typically be every 30 minutes, proceeding to Taunton, Exeter, Plymouth and Penzance. There would also be trains to Swindon, Cardiff, and Maesteg plus regular trains to Worcester Foregate Street for Worcester City Centre.

The Norton area would become attractive to people wishing to travel to Birmingham and Cheltenham to work, once new housing was built, but initially the station would depend on passengers arriving by car, and the project includes a car park with 500 spaces.
