Rebuild the railway station in St Johns.
Create a frequent rail shuttle between Evesham and Malvern, calling at new Worcester parkway and existing Worcester stations.
There used to be a station in St Johns, the empty site has enough room for a platform to be rebuilt.
When the Severn floods, all foot and road bridges in the city are shut, only the railway continues to run.
A station in St Johns would provide reliable transport over the river.
In normal times, if you live in St Johns, it is not convenient to travel by train, because the stations are on the other side of the river and you have to fight through traffic to reach them.
A frequent rail shuttle between Evesham and Malvern, calling at Worcester Parkway, ForegateStreet, and a rebuilt St Johns would be really useful to link these towns together, reduce city traffic, and provide a connection at Parkway to the fast main line from Bristol to Birmingham.
