Local Transport

It’s great that £2.25 million has been committed to support a new railway station at the Portway Park and Ride in Shirehampton. For those of you that work in town, it may prove much easier to park at the Park and Ride and jump on one of the new trains on the Severn Beach line into Clifton or Bristol Temple Meads. But there is still much more work to be done on getting inner city rail and sustainable bus routes sorted within Bristol North West. In my first meeting with the Metro Mayor I will be pushing for the delivery of the Henbury Loop line, including the re-opening of local stations, and working with bus providers to try and keep bus routes open and connected with future rail networks. With so many thousands of new houses being built across the border in South Gloucestershire we mustn’t stop applying the pressure to stop our road network getting completely jammed.

I am looking forward to meeting as many of you as I can at local events, at my street surgeries or in your local coffee shop or pub.
