Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

From Lands Improvement Holdings Ltd


Our representation will be in support of the proposed Portishead Branch Line – MetroWest Phase 1. There is a known shortage of housing throughout the country and a perceived concern relating to local traffic congestion and associated pollution contributing to public health and environmental issues. The Portishead Branch Line will provide a significant improvement to the local sustainable transport provision and should help to reduce dependency on private cars. This should lead to a reduction in congestion / pollution and ultimately facilitate the provision of new homes in the area whilst mitigating the effects on public health and the environment.
