Portishead Branch Line - MetroWest Phase 1

Received 26 February 2020
From Jane Bonnick


1 Concern for the level of damage to farmland proposed to facilitate the development and the resulting impact on wildlife and the natural environment 2 Concern about the potential congestion in the village with the proposed use of narrow & residential roads for transporting heavy or bulky supplies, equipment & machinery. 3 Very keen to have a train route through from Portishead but question whether these damaging measures necessary when there is a functioning rail route from Avonmouth to the sites in Pill, which has well established much easier acces for heavy and oversized vehicles?
