Area: Avon
Interests: Rail

Traffic is a big problem in Bristol. We all suffer delay, pollution, noise, accidents and road rage. We all pay for expensive attempts to prevent all this. Yet Bristol fails to exploit an asset that would reduce traffic: our branch railways, neglected and disused, and our main line stations, obscure and dismantled, still make up a ready-to-use system other cities would envy, which might eventually be converted to light rail.

Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways (FOSBR) campaigns to:

  • Defend services on the Severn Beach Railway
  • Restore passenger services to Portishead, Pill, and Ashton, Chittening, Hallen and Henbury, Horfield and Ashley Down
  • Increase services to Pilning, Patchway, Stapleton Road Lawrence Hill, Keynsham, Parson Street and Bedminster
  • Improve connections with other railway lines and other forms of Public Transport

The group meets four times a year.
