MORE THAN £3.5 million is to be spent on transforming two Shropshire railway stations.

Bosses at Network Rail have revealed plans to close Cosford Railway Station, parts of which are more than 100 years old, for nearly five months and spend £2.1 million rebuilding it. The existing wooden station building was opened in 1937.

The work at Cosford will be followed by a £1.5 million refurbishment of Albrighton Railway Station, just minutes down the line, starting next spring.

During the closure of the station at Cosford, which is on the Shrewsbury to Wolverhampton line, a bus service will be provided to the station in Albrighton by London Midland.
