Proposal to form a local Community Rail Partnership

18th June 2021, 10:26am | By richardrogers |

Following a meeting on Friday with TransWilts Community Rail Partnership(CRP), Pewsey Vale Rail User Group and Great Bedwyn Rail User Group have been asked to support and participate in a new CRP which would be know as the Kennet and Avon Line. This would also include the proposed new station at Devizes and all other stations from Kintbury to Westbury which is fast becoming the new hub as the Bristol Metro stops there.

We have been asked to consult and ask for comments on this proposal by the end of this week June 20th. So please share this and my email for replies with anybody interested in the future of rail travel in our part of Wiltshire. The aim is an hourly stopping service both East and West with trains starting and terminating anywhere along this line.

TransWilts would have access to the Community Rail Network funds to employ an officer to oversea this group and we would have access to their expertise, indeed they would be the drivers of this project.

To find out more or share any comments please email Dawn Wilson dawnwilson917@yahoo.com
