Watch: Darren argues for North Bristol rail network

In an adjournment debate secured by North Somerset MP Liam Fox to back a rail link to Portishead, Bristol North West MP Darren Jones made the case that stronger and better integrated rail links are required across north Bristol, starting with the Henbury Loop Line. Commenting on Facebook, Jones said:

Bristol faces some of the worst road congestion and air pollution anywhere in Britain. We urgently need a properly funded, joined-up approach to public transport which makes it easier, cheaper and greener both to travel around north Bristol and get into the city. As I argued yesterday in a House of Commons debate on a rail link to Portishead, this must include a full service along the Henbury loop line (and much more besides!).

Now more than ever, Bristol needs proper public transport
