Portishead will be the western terminus of the reopened Portishead line, which will extend from Portishead to Bristol Temple Meads. The reopening forms Phase 1b of the MetroWest programme.

The Portishead scheme is now fully funded and proceeding through the Development Consent Order process, which has been delayed by about four months due to Covid-19. (Source: Portishead Railway Group, August 2020.)

When the line reopens, there will be two trains per hour in each direction, with services provided by Great Western Railway.

The following map shows the confirmed location of the new Portishead station, where Quays Avenue meets Harbour Road. Precise details of the layout remain to be decided. (Source of information and map: Portishead Railway Group.)
