Services between Kidderminster Junction and Foley Park had been withdrawn by B.R. and Kidderminster Yard closed on 16 May 1983. A new station was built on the site of the old yard and a ground frame to control the connections to platform 1 (locked by the staff) was provided.

Construction of a signalbox commenced, incorporating the frame from Acton Yard and the first signals were erected in 1986. The up distant was repositioned in 1987 and the box was commissioned on 21 November 1987 including all connections as far as the gantry. Acceptance lever working was brought into use on this date as was the first motor operated point on the SVR. Work on signalling for the new platform 2 started in 1990 and was commissioned by Christmas 1990.
