The New Broadway Station
The GWR Board are fully supporting the Broadway Area Group's recommendation that the new Station Building should be a true likeness of the old. Obviously the requirements for some modern facilities will mean compromises. All these will be considered in the context of rewarding the fare paying passengers, and the local community with a heritage show piece we can all be proud of. Fred Lea's impression above is of the currently planned Broadway Station. Hopefully it will be considered as a good likeness of the original that is practicably possible.
At the end of August 2015, work started on the foundations of the Station Building and the first blocks for the internal walls have been laid.
By the end of January 2017, all of the brickwork, window and door frames were in place. Great progress has been made.
June 2017: The steel roof trusses are in place ready to receive the roofing sheets. These trusses were manufactured by the railway's Steam Locomotive Department, and are a faithful reproduction of the original trusses to be seen at Toddington station.
October 2017: The roof is complete, the scaffolding has been removed, and the building looks like a Great Western Railway station. It still needs glazing, doors and internal fitting out.
