Bristol And South Gloucestershire Set For Seven New Train Stations

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Rail Technology Magazine.

These are the first two paragraphs.

Multi-million-pound proposals to breathe new life into Bristol and South Gloucestershire’s defunct railways and reverse the Beeching cuts from the 1960’s, are set to go ahead.

With an investment strategy which proposes £350m for transport over the next 20 years. The West of England Combined Authority (WECA), comprising Bristol city, South Gloucestershire and Bath & North East Somerset councils, is expected to agree investments into a raft of projects at its committee meeting on Friday, June 14.

The improvements include.

Note.

  1. The reopening of Henbury station must mean the reopening of the freight-only Henbury Loop Line to passenger services.
  2. Portway Parkway station will be built adjacent to an existing Park-and-Ride.
  3. I wrote about Charfield station in Beeching Reversal – Charfield Station.

It certainly looks like MetroWest is finally getting underway.
