Fund the Portishead Railway

Central government has recently failed to provide the Department of Transport funding for the MetroWest Phase One rail line to Portishead meaning further delays and uncertainty for the project reported here in the Bristol Post.

We are calling on the Government to fully fund MetroWest Phase One as we believe a rail link to Portishead is vital for cutting congestion and making it easier for our residents to get into Bristol and around the country by rail! 

If you agree then make sure to sign our petition to send a message to the Conservative government and to get #PortisheadBackOnTrack

We hope you support and join our campaign!
