Hmmm .. Noting there is a 200 pound penalty for misuse - not sure that I've seen that before.  It appears to be applied to both buttons - "I'm feeling suicidal" to blue button, c-ching, 200 pounds - or is that journey planning?

More progress on the car park (only taken 20 years)

Quote
A plan adding at least 200 spaces of commuter parking as well as significantly increased parking for disabled rail users has now been submitted to the government.

The plan, which also includes installing a new connecting footbridge, has been under consideration since 2016 when West Worcestershire MP (Member of Parliament) Harriett Baldwin was first briefed on the proposals by Wychavon District Council.

Further update on the platform information screen.
I had to travel to Evesham this afternoon on the 14:24 to collect my car from the garage.

I arrived at Pershore station at about 14:10, this was taken at 14:16. The time has not updated to GMT due to the system being off line for months.

Work on the new road bridge east of Pershore station is now more advanced.

WORK on a new county road bypass is now underway.

A new photo has been shared online showing the pillars for the new Pershore Northern Link Road.

This is part of Worcestershire County Council's ongoing scheme to improve road-links throughout the county.

When finished, the area will have a new bridge over the railway, linking Wyre Road to the A44 Wyre Piddle Bypass.

Worcestershire Highways are saying the Bridge over the OWW (Oxford Worcester and Wolverhampton) line just east of Pershore station will be completed in Summer 2022.

Pershore link road

Pershore Northern Link Road will improve traffic links and tackle congestion in and around the town.

The major scheme sees the construction of a new highway and road bridge and provide a link between the A44/B4083 and B4083 Wyre Road roundabouts north of Pershore.

According to the council, the full scheme will be completed by the summer of 2022.

First of all an update on the new road bridge. The deck was lifted into place a few weeks ago and work contiues on the road and bridge. It is not possible to get pictures from a public place at the moment.

And now back to the ticket machine.

A couple of weeks age I made a day trip to the National trust property at Mottisfont. I traveled from Pershore to Mottisfont & Dunbridge. Leaving on the 08:25. My ticket was an Anytime day return. Off peak tickets are available on this train but are more expensive because they are period returns. However I should have been able to use a senior railcard as off peak tickets are available. But even after 08:20 the senior railcard button was grayed out, so I gave up and bought a ticket from the guard.

Today I again caught the 08:25 but this time going to Pewsey to walk along the K and A. Pewsey is outside the Network railcard area so a Senior railcard discount should be available at all times. The machine offered my the correct off peak ticket but again the senior railcard button was greyed out. This time I used my phone to buy an E ticket.

About time!

Thinking back to the days of one train each way calling at Pershore and realising that the car park provision has hardly changed since then

Looking forward to this becoming a reality
