Under Phase 1a of the MetroWest programme, services on the Severn Beach line will be increased to two trains per hour and extended beyond Bristol Temple Meads to Bath, with a planned extension to Westbury announced by West of England Combined Authority in June 2020 (see here).
The Portway Park & Ride station scheme is fully funded, with the cost of the project – which includes work that has already taken place – being between £3.4 – 3.6m. Following some delays due to the pandemic, detailed project design is now progressing, with work set to start on site at the end of this year ahead of completion of construction in the summer of 2021.
