Updated designs for Beaulieu’s own station have been submitted to Chelmsford City Council last month.

The outline plans for Beaulieu Park Station which envisages the main three-platform station building as a single ‘pavilion’ are the latest step in the delivery of a new station for the local residents.

The new station will include cycleways, pathways bike storage and car parking.

New tracks will enable stopping services to call at the station while allowing fast trains to pass through unimpeded. London will be around 40 minutes away.

With a targeted opening date of 2025/26, the new station will help to relieve pressure for the busy, Chelmsford station and help reduce car journeys into the city tackling congestion on local roads and reducing pollution, Network Rail has said.
