However the station survived though with a poor service until the station became part of the West Midlands PTE and became part of the Cross-City Line in 1980. The platform was moved to the North when the line was electrified in 1993. Nowadays the station is managed by West Midlands Trains.
The line from Barnt Green to Redditch is largely single track and Alvechurch had a just single platform until the addition of a passing loop at Alvechurch (and the construction of a second platform) in 2014 to enable a greater frequency of service to Redditch. This required also the addition of a footbridge.
