Despite a sustained campaign by Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways and other parties to restore passenger services across the entire line, the reopened line forming part of Phase 2 of the MetroWest programme will be spur from the Filton junctions extending only as far as Henbury, with an intermediate station at North Filton to support new residential and commercial development at the site of the former Filton airfield.
When the line eventually reopens to passenger trains, Great Western Railway will provide an hourly service between Bristol Temple Meads and Henbury, calling at Lawrence Hill, Stapleton Road, Filton Abbey Wood and North Filton. An additional station at Ashley Down is at the planning stage and a further station at Horfield is under consideration.
