FROM this week all passengers travelling on public transport must wear face coverings.

The new law came into effect yesterday, June 15 in a bid to keep people safe as the Government continues to ease the coronavirus lockdown.

Birmingham New Street, which connects to Redditch, Bromsgrove, Droitwich and Worcester, is now equipped with vending machines offering face coverings and hand sanitisers.

New signage has also been added to help passengers navigate the station while keeping to the two metre rule.

Jake Kelly, passenger director for Network Rail’s North West and Central region, said: “I’d like to thank all our passengers for doing their bit and avoiding train travel during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“Moving past Covid-19 requires a national team effort. Each of us must do our bit.”
