Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

Received 25 February 2020
From Vicki Merrin


I am in full support of the railway returning to our village of Pill and believe it will only create positive change to the residents of the area. Less traffic on the roads can only be a good thing, I will certainly use the service to commute to Bristol. My only concern is how much room there will be on the trains once they reach Pill after leaving Portishead and what the planners will do about this to ensure Pill is served as well as Portishead.
