Daventry Parkway: A new accessible modern exciting railway station
Daventry Parkway is a brand new railway station proposal 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.
The current situation
Northamptonshire has one of the worst rail links in England, with only 4 of it's towns having a rail link.
Accessibility and safety
Daventry Parkway Project is a campaign/proposal to reopen the railway station in the village of Weedon Bec.
The station would be at or near the point where the A45 road crosses the West Coast Main Line and would primarily serve Daventry, utilising potential capacity released when HS2 Phase 1 opens, the new high-speed line primarily between Birmingham and London, reducing the congestion on the existing main line by transferring existing Intercity trains to High Speed Two.
