Daventry Parkway: A new accessible modern useful navigable sustainable
railway station

Daventry Parkway is a brand new railway station programme for the East Midlands, to implement a state-of-the-art Parkway station in Weedon Bec, to serve the town of Daventry, with no current rail link.

Relinking Daventry to the rail network

Daventry is one of the largest towns in the United Kingdom without a rail link, but it's still growing. Something needs to be done about this, which is what Daventry Parkway Project is trying to solve.

Location

The station would be located in Weedon Bec, a village of 2,700 people just outside Daventry. It would be located to take advantage of great A-road links in the village.

Modal shift

One of our main goals of this project is to get people out of carbon-emitting cars, and into green, electric and safer public transport.

Capacity

The scheme would take advantage of increased capacity on the West Coast Main Line once Intercity services running on the line have been transferred to High Speed Two, once Phase One has entered operation.

Daventry Parkway's most commonly asked questions about stage 1

Stage 1 is the second stage in Daventry Parkway's journey. It was initiated when West Northamptonshire Council expressed their support for Daventry Parkway to go ahead.
When will stage 2 begin?
Stage 2 will begin once all tasks in stage 1 are completed. There's no estimated end date for "stage 1". We can't predict at this point in our campaign.

Stage 1 has around 7 main tasks within it, including getting written support from MPs and support from other councillors, as well as land protection and consultation/making local people aware.

Stage 2 includes Daventry Parkway being included in local plans, and being noticed by national Government/mentioned in Parliament. Stage 2 will also include the dissolution of Daventry Parkway Project.
