The next Cotswold Line station in line for improvement work is Kingham, where foundations for a new waiting room are being prepared.

The new building will be on platform 2, providing shelter for passengers travelling towards Oxford and London. 

It will replace a smaller structure dating from the mid-1970s, when British Rail demolished and replaced buildings provided in the station's Victorian heyday as a busy junction, when routes diverged to Chipping Norton and Banbury to the east and Bourton-on-the Water and Cheltenham to the west.

The waiting room will be close to the new footbridge erected in 2016 to replace a life-expired footbridge at the southern end of the platforms. It is expected to be ready for passengers to use in the spring.

  • The CLPG is continuing to press the case for lifts to be added to the footbridge, to allow disabled passengers to use platform 2 and make it easier to reach for people travelling with heavy luggage and prams.
