Reconfiguration pushes price up

I can clarify things slightly for Alan Marshall, who last week was wondering about the comparatively high cost of the town’s new railway station.

It’s my understanding that a significant proportion of the cost is earmarked for necessary track and signal reconfiguration works at Leamington to allow trains from/to Kenilworth to enter/exit the town side bay platform. Unfortunately I don’t know the technical or financial details.
