Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

1. What else is being done to prevent users of the train station parking in the village quarter for free? The roads are already busy and impacts bus routes and waste collections? (Look at Nailsea & Backwell and Yatton stations, good car parks but people still park for free in the back roads) 2. The location of the 2 hour parking bays opposite the proposed entrance to the station will result in people doing U-turns on the road to get back out to the Quays Avenue or force them further into the village quarter and completing U-turns in these junctions causing further obstructions and delays to traffic flows.
