Improvement work at two Worcestershire railway stations has been completed.
A £785,000 overhaul of Worcester Foregate Street Station includes new entrance canopies, automatic doors and a renovation of its pedestrian subway.
A new booking office, extra car parking spaces and improved disabled access to platforms has been installed at Malvern Link station at a cost of £471,000.
The funding for the project has come from Worcestershire County Council's £28m wider transport strategy.
It was awarded £14.2m by the Department for Transport last year to invest in major transport schemes.
Worcester Foregate Street station's 1860 railway bridge was refurbished last year after Network Rail spent more than £1m to preserve it.
