November 2016 – Bristol City Council have issued a statement confirming their new study into the feasibility of various rail enhancements in the city including a new station at Ashton Gate. You can read the statement by clicking here.
The study is now due to commence early in 2017 and be completed before the end of the year.
The Council’s consultants will look at a number of potential developments to our rail infrastructure and service ranging from improved journey frequencies; a new examination of the Henbury Loop; new stations at Ashton Gate, Lockleaze and St. Anne’s and identify the best ways of delivering the projects.
The study team are keen to talk to local organisations, businesses and interest groups such as ours. We hope to have our first meeting to press the case for Ashton Gate soon.
