Much of the funding for the restoration programme came from a Rural Development grant, administered by the Forest of Dean Local Action Group in Coleford. The programme of work involved the construction of a four-coach platform on the Pillowell (up) side of the line, with the new station building be constructed in traditional Severn and Wye style.
Future developments in Whitecroft will include doubling the track through the station, the construction of the second (down) platform on the Bream side of the line and the addition of a goods shed.
