A new Broadland station is being explored by Broadland District Council as part of a package of improvements to the Bittern Line including and a more frequent train service between Norwich and North Walsham.

The scheme could generate more than £15m for the area and be used by around 190,000 passengers each year.

As part of the proposed changes, the Norwich to North Walsham service would see two trains operate along the line every hour, Monday to Saturday.

It is anticipated that funding for the improvements would be shared between various parties, including Broadland, Norfolk County Council, North Norfolk District Council, the New Anglia LEP and the Department for Transport.

A spokesman for Network Rail said: “We have had very early discussions with the council about the possibility of a new station at Broadland Business Park.”

“Any new station would need to be agreed with the train operator and the Department for Transport.”
