Portishead rail services
Portishead branch line re-opening as a part of MetroWest rail improvements
The MetroWest project is a package of major rail improvements for the West of England region. The project is being delivered by the West of England councils and the West of England Combined Authority, who are working in partnership with Network Rail and Great Western Railway to develop the scheme.
The MetroWest Phase 1 project is proposing to re-open the Portishead rail line to passenger train services and to enhance local passenger train services on the Severn Beach and Bath to Bristol lines.
The plans include a new rail station at Portishead and the re-opening of the former station at Pill.
