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!
North Somerset Liberal Democrats
Note: This petition feeds into the Portishead Back on Track petition found here. We will include your name and signature when submitting the petition to The Rt Hon Chris Grayling MP, Secretary of State for Transport and The Rt Hon Dr Liam Fox MP, MP for North Somerset.
