St Anne’s Park is a proposed station on the Great Western main line between Bristol Temple Meads and Keynsham. The station would be built on the site of the original station, which closed in 1970, and would form part of the MetroWest system. The station would most likely be a calling point for Great Western Railway services operating between Severn Beach and Bath Spa (MetroWest Plase 1a).

Feasibility funding was announced in November for developing a proposal for St Anne’s Park station, and South Gloucestershire Council is submitting an outline business case for Charfield station following an award of £1.2m from West of England Combined Authority in 2019.

A railway station that has out of use for 50 years could be reopened under proposals being put forward by the MP for Bristol East. Kerry McCarthy, along with Labour councillor Tim Rippington, has formally submitted a bid to restore St Anne’s Park Station, and says the move has the potential to “transform travel in the area”, reduce gridlock and open access to other parts of the city. The station near Wick Road was first opened on May 23 1898 and its closure in 1970 left the constituency of Bristol East with no train stations and the communities of Brislington and St Anne’s poorly served by public transport. The recent bid submitted to the Government’s Restoring Your Railway Ideas Fund is the culmination of a longstanding campaign to reopen the station, spearheaded by McCarthy and residents in the area.
