Update on Funding Bid for the Bristol Road Station, Stonehouse

The Town Council through the hard work of Councillor Watt and the Town Clerk Gill Jennings have submitted a scheme prioritisation proforma in an attempt to provide funding for the re-opening of Bristol Road Station.

The Council feel it is important to protect the site from development in order to preserve a future railway stop to link Stonehouse, Stroud, Quedgeley and environs to employment centres such as Bristol, to provide an alternative route in the event of a motorway catastrophe and to ensure sustainability. 

The scheme has the support of MP Neil Carmichael, Stroud District Council, Stagecoach, First Great Western, Network Rail, Wycliffe College, and others.  The scheme would potentially link with another scheme proposed by Stroud District Council for Ocean Bridge. 

Scheme prioritisation proformas are available to view at: http://www.gltb.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=113439

If you wish to support the scheme please write to the Town Clerk before the closing date of 10th June 2013.
