It has been revealed that a new station is being proposed at Alrewas between Lichfield Trent Valley high level and Wichnor Junction, which is on the line linking Tamworth and Burton-on-Trent.

It includes a Railway Industry Memorial, which was unveiled in May 2012. Talks have taken place about the proposal between the MP for Lichfield Michael Fabricant and new rail minister Wendy Morton.
