So, at long last some progress is being made towards Willenhall getting back on the rail map. Have to say I am still very disappointed with the lack of a real presence of a main pedestrian entrance coming off the bridge above the railway in Bilston Street. There are also issues around the frequency of services from the new station. In a word, in my view it lacks ambition. But at least it’s a step in the right direction. We will continue to fight for better things to come.
