Train Services on Track at Willington

Location: The Green, Willington View Map

Extra train services stopping at Willington are making it easier for local people to travel to nearby cities and towns.

CrossCountry Trains has improved travel between Nottingham, Derby, Burton and Birmingham by introducing two extra trains in each direction which will call at the village's station.

This will make it more convenient for residents in Willington and surrounding areas to get into these major Midlands cities and towns and to connect to places further afield.

The two extra morning and afternoon stops now mean 12 trains call at Willington daily giving more flexibility to commuters and shoppers.

The service is being run as a pilot to see how popular it is. It's been launched after local residents and students attending Derby University Roundhouse Campus said they wanted more trains to stop at the station.

The Willington stops could become a permanent fixture if they prove popular enough.
