The Government are providing £100 million to the National Stations Improvement Fund and £100 million for Access for All in the period 2014-19. This is in addition to major investment which is already under way at Birmingham New Street and Reading.

It is for local transport authorities to identify whether a new station is the best way to meet local transport need and, if so, to secure funding from locally allocated funds such as the Local Growth Fund.
