Gloucester Rail Station improvements

Gloucestershire County Council have created a new entrance and exit for the Gloucester Rail Station Car Park. This is part of a wider partnership project to revamp Gloucester Railway Station including making the subway fully accessible, better integration between buses and trains, more cycle spaces and an improved station building.

The first stage of improvement was the new junction between Metz Way and the station car park, this now allows vehicles to leave the station via Metz Way on the eastbound dual carriageway, diverting traffic away from the city centre and reducing congestion. This new entrance to the railway station was opened in December 2021.

Once the Metz way junction was completed, Bruton Way junction was upgraded with wider pavements and better access to help pedestrians and cyclists move to and from the city centre and an upgrade of the traffic signals to help traffic flows and pedestrians.

These improvements are the first phase of a £6million project by Great Western Railway and Gloucester City Council, funded by a GFirst Local Enterprise Partnership Growth Deal, to upgrade Gloucester Rail Station. Redevelopment of the station aims to encourage more people to use sustainable transport by improving the experience of rail passengers, making pedestrian access easier including improvements to the subway and upgrading facilities for cyclists and bus passengers, as well as making provision for electric vehicle charging.
