Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

Received 25 February 2020
From Julia Davis


Train is vital for Pill which has an ageing population and has recently had its bus service slashed by up to 50% off peak. The A369 is congested as is junction 19 of the M5 so it is uncomfortable for elderly drivers to negotiate their way into Bristol and onwards. Roads into Portishead, the nearest place for supermarket shopping is also very busy so any easing of the busy roads is gratefully received.
