Kenilworth Station – Progress Report

The latest report from the County Council shows that the Kenilworth Station project is making some good progress.

The first key task is to decide the “Joint Promoter and Funder” – i.e. the private sector company that the Council will work with to bring this project to a successful conclusion. The tender documents were completed last month, and a contract notice published on the 28th November, for expressions of interest by no later than 13th February 2009. Invitations to tender will be issued in March, with the contract to be awarded in May 2009.

Discussions with train operating companies are in progress, and the original outline business case has been reviewed and is still showing a very positive return for this project. The aim is to deliver the new station by March 2012, and a possible bid for new regional funding may assist this further.

I continue to be a strong supporter of and advocate for a station for Kenilworth, and will do everything in my power to help bring this venture to a successful conclusion.
