West Midlands Railway said the work was required on platform three at Lichfield Trent Valley.

It means services to and from Lichfield City on the cross city line will be replaced by buses until the end of the day on 8th May.

A spokesperson said:

“West Midlands Railway will be running a regular shuttle bus between Lichfield City and Lichfield Trent Valley for the duration of the disruption.

“West Midlands Railway customers may also use their tickets on London Northwestern Railway services between Birmingham New Street and Stafford to connect with trains to Lichfield Trent Valley.”

  1. They’re also not letting pedestrians walk over the bridge to get to platform 2 and are doing a minibus route to drive around to there. I discovered this the hard way today when I missed my train because the minibus took 20 minutes to arrive. There is no signage at the station explaining any of this.

  2. There’s also an absence of signage showing how to get there on foot, as l had to last night. I ended up on an industrial estate in the dark. My orientation got me to the other side in the end but if you didn’t know the area you’d be completely lost.
