Alvechurch station was on a single track branchline linking Barnt Green to Redditch The line forms part of the Birmingham Cross City Line. The cross-city line is one of the busiest rail routes into Birmingham. At present the line is now served by three trains per hour.
The branch line has been upgraded so that an extra train service can run every hour. The upgrade includes a new station and the installation of a dual track section of about 3km in length to allow trains to pass in opposite directions
