Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

Received 25 February 2020
From Christine Weidner


I live very close to Lodway Farm and have only in the past week or so heard that there are plans to use the farm land to complete sections of the Metrowest line to Portishead 24 hours a day, and that heavy goods vehicles will be travelling along The Poplars to access the farm. I am concerned about the traffic, noise and light pollution the proposed plans will create. I am also concerned that these more detailed plans have not been made widely known to the community of Pill and Easton-in-Gordano.
