The train station at the Ricoh Arena is unlikely to be open before Autumn 2014, according to the Coventry Telegraph's Les Reid.

There is a delay in the Nuneaton, Coventry, Kenilworth, Leamington (NUCKLE) project which means that it will now not be until Autumn 2014 at the earliest before Coventry City supporters can get a train to and from the station at the Ricoh Arena.

A Council Spokesman told Mr Reid:  “The current completion date for the whole project is mid-2015, with the station built and in place at the Ricoh by autumn 2014.

“The current train service that passes there will be able to stop at the station from the date it is completed.

“Continuing work is taking place to enable the project to stay within the £23.5m budget resulting in the delays to early forecast completion dates.”
