It’s worth noting that there will be a complete closure of the railway line between Barnt Green and Bromsgrove station between Wednesday 26th October – Sunday 6th November 2016 inc. for major track and signalling changes. This will not affect the line between Redditch, Barnt Green and Birmingham; the cross-city service will operate as normal except for Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th November.
