Nuneaton Coventry and Leamington Spa rail upgrade
The Nuneaton, Coventry and Leamington Spa rail upgrade, known locally as 'NUCKLE' - NUneaton, Coventry, Kenilworth, LEamington Spa - aims to improve the existing rail line along the route.
NUCKLE is being delivered by the Coventry City Council, Centro and Warwickshire County Council. It is funded by, the three partners, Department for Transport (DfT) and European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
Delievered as part of phase 1 NUCKLE, two new stations on the line between Nuneaton and Coventry opened in January 2016 at Bermuda Park and Coventry Arena.
The existing platforms at Bedworth station have also been extended.
Please note that when sporting events take place at Coventry Arena, no trains will call there for an hour after any event.
Kenilworth StationAfter an absence of 50 years Kenilworth is set to re-join rail network thanks to support from the Department for Transport and Warwickshire County Council. A new Kenilworth station will be built on the route between Coventry and Leamington Spa.
The new station will be built on the site of the town’s previous station at Priory Road, which closed in 1965.
Construction work at Kenilworth Rail Station started last year and is continuing.

Coventry to Leamingtom Spa line upgrade:
Network Rail will be carrying out significant infrastructure works this year, including signalling upgrades and the relaying of the track through Kenilworth. These works are required to enable the new train service to operate for Kenilworth Station.
Later work will include a new platform at Coventry to increase the frequency of services.
The current station works to improve the ticket area and ticket office, due for completion in Summer 2016, are a separate scheme by Virgin Trains and do not form part of the NUCKLE upgrade,
