In respect of the three options for the site of the new Portishead Station I consider that the rail link scheme will be compromised if the station is moved away from the current (Option 1) town centre location. As a civil engineer (with no interest in this project ) the highway and overbridge issues are relatively staightforward for this option and should not be overstated, and the adverse impacts can be mitigated. The additional parking (if required - less of course would be required for this o

I object to option 2 because it will cause the most disruption to local residents in the immediate area, especially the parking, as people will be parking wherever they possibly can, which will cause congestion on small side roads and driveways. This will also make it very difficult for emergency services vehicles to access. If the expected numbers of travellers is to be 400,000 per year, this equates to over 1000 per day, with only 200 car parking spaces this leaves the issue of parking a big

Option 2 of the Portishead railway plan is just not viable . Living close to this area , an area full of families , this is not viable. The council have not been forthcoming with these plans , but if they were there would be many more objections . There is not enough land , this impacts on the housing here , and would increase dangers from increased cars trying to park around the site . Having lived in Portishead all my life there is no need for a rail link anyway . The cycle path submitted by s

I have a number of objections concerning the proposed railway site option 2 Portishead: - The new proposed site of the station near to Trinity school,this would lead to even more congestion getting in and out of the Ashlands. Many of those who would be affected by the new station site have little idea of the new proposed site. -How difficult was it to register an objection! -The expense to the tax payer to subsidise the line,the idea that 400,000 trips would be made each year seems a vast ove

Hello I attempted to comment on the re-instatement of the Portishead railway - which I applaud. I was unable to do so as registration was required which failed to be verified before I had to leave. I spoke with Rachel Sandy who kindly passed on my comments. I hope the comments have reached you. Just an additional comment - having to wait another four years for this link to be provided is ridiculous and totally unacceptable. The development of Portishead has been rapid with, it seems, developers

With regard to option 2, the train station being built by Trinity school, I object due to the amount of congestion and noise that would come with a train station. Also turning a public footpath into a roadway in the middle of a residential estate is far from ideal.

1. The Nurse Trust is the owner of the triangle of land bounded by Sheepway, the former railway line and the Moor Gate development on the eastern edge of Portishead. It is noted that one of the three options for a new railway station serving Portishead (Option 3) would be sited on land owned by the Trust. 2. The Trust fully supports the re-opening of the Bristol-Portishead branch line along its former route. It is clear that there are a number of issues relating to the three options for the rai

Policy DM22: Existing and Proposed Railway Lines Network Rail support the safeguarding of the 10 metre corridor either side of the Main Line. We are aware of the Council's aspirations to fund and reinstate the Portishead Line and support the safeguarding of this route.

I fully support the policy of protecting existing and proposed railway lines from inappropriate development. North Somerset and Bristol need a modern railway system.
