Rugby Parkway is a proposed railway station in Rugby, promoted by Warwickshire County Council. The station was proposed by Warwickshire County Council and was given the green light after funding was secured. [1] It was the subject of a high level feasibility study which recommended the station to be located on the Northampton Loop Line, near the Hillmorton area of Rugby, and close to new housing in Houlton and DIRFT.[2]

It will be near to the location of the former Kilsby and Crick station .

In 2017, the Coventry & Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) allocated £4 million to the project to develop this station as part of the Growth Deal. [3]

However in June 2018 the plans were put on hold after £4 million of funding from CWLEP was withdrawn when Warwickshire County Council could not meet the deadline to secure an additional £5 million from the government.[4]

Services[edit]

As of 2018, the services are yet to be defined, but could be two or possibly three per hour.[2]
