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.
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 every hour. Southbound trains towards Cheltenham and Bristol would be every 30 minutes, proceeding to Taunton, Exeter, Plymouth and Penzance. There would also be trains to Swindon, Cardiff, and Maesteg. There would be regular trains to Worcester Foregate Street for Worcester City Centre.
The development of Worcester Parkway station at Norton will boost the Worcester economy. The Norton area would become attractive to people wishing to travel to Birmingham and Cheltenham to work, and thus should be designated as a residential area. The station will also have up to 500 parking spaces.
