“But at the standard £2.40 fare, it’s not going to wash its face. It’s not going to be financially viable.”
He added: “You would have to multiply the day return fare six or seven fold.”
Francis Thomas, from London Midland, said: “We are just waiting for the keys from Coventry City Council.
“When they think it is ready, they would arrange a meeting with Network Rail and us. There’s no schedule for a handover as far as we know.”

Gold I bring to crown Him again
King forever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign
Incense owns a Deity nigh
Prayer and praising, all men raising
Worship Him, God most high
