The Attached snapshot from the OS map shows that the extra bridge span was for a farm track that was also a Public Bridleway. This ran to a foot crossing further south.
Looking at the Current Worcestershire county council footpath mapping https://gis.worcestershire.gov.uk/website/countryside/ the Bridleway and foot crossing have now been closed.

Welcome indeed, TonyN, and an interesting answer to the question.

I noticed today that even 5 months after opening the coach side displays on an IET where not showing Worcestershire parkway.
Also the automated announcements at Pershore still say "Calling at WOP and Worcester shrub hill".

Yes, itís apparently a big deal to change it due to a last minute change of station code by Network Rail.  Made more difficult by the the current situation.  Even so, not particularly impressive!

WOP, wouldn't some of our European neighbours take offence at that term?

Not unique - there are those of us draw a deep breath when we talk about Barnstaple by code.

There are some moderately amusing IATA codes too. Codified, the flight from Dickinson Theodore Roosevelt Airport to Herendeen Bay in Alaska is a particularly pleasing combo.
