Tame Bridge Parkway is a railway station in the north of the borough of Sandwell, in the West Midlands, England, close to the boundary with Walsall. The station is operated by West Midlands Railway. It is situated on the Walsall Line 9 miles (14 km) north of Birmingham New Street, part of the former Grand Junction Railway, opened in 1837.

The station was opened by British Rail in 1990, having been built at a cost of £600,000. It takes its name from the nearby River Tame.

Pedestrian and vehicular access is via the A4031 Walsall Road.

Services[edit]

Local and regional services are operated by West Midlands Railway. During Monday to Saturday daytimes, in each direction there are four trains an hour serving Tame Bridge Parkway, between Birmingham and Walsall.[1] Services to Birmingham New Street call either at all stations via Aston or are designated as "semi-fast" and run non-stop to New Street via Winson Green.

Services in the other direction are for Walsall and stations to Rugeley Trent Valley, with three trains an hour terminating at the former and one going to the latter (two per hour at peak times and on Saturdays, although some Rugeley trains skip certain stations north of Walsall). During Monday to Saturday evenings and all day on Sundays, there are two trains per hour to Birmingham (one calls all stations and one runs non-stop). Northbound there are two trains per hour to Walsall (one calling all stations and one running non-stop) with one train per hour continuing to Rugeley Trent Valley.
