Many people have some idea of the works required along the line but what’s probably not so widely known is that reopening the Portishead line relies on completion of a number of other Bristol area rail infrastructure improvements. Here’s an update on the status of these other major items of rail infrastructure improvement and how they relate to reopening the Portishead line:


Parson Street Improvements


Filton Bank Improvements – now complete


Mainline Electrification


Bristol Area Signalling Re-engineering – complete
