Ashley Down is a new station being built between Filton Abbey Wood and Stapleton Road. It will be located between Muller Road, to the west, and Ashley Down Road, to the east.
Once open, the station will provide another choice of sustainable travel into the city centre as well as to destinations across the region with connections to the wider rail network.
The station is due to open in 2024.
Facilities at Ashley Down station
The station will have two accessible platforms which will be served by existing train services between Bristol Temple Meads and Filton Abbey Wood. It will be equipped with:
- A ticket machine
- Smart ticket readers
- Live train departure screens
- A help point
- Cycle parking for 20 bicycles
- Free customer Wi-Fi
Access to the station will be via an entrance by the Concorde Way cycle path off Station Road with a footbridge between platforms equipped with lifts.
Once the station has opened, the station will provide train services to and from Bristol Temple Meads taking approximately 10 minutes.

The station is being funded by the West of England Combined Authority with some additional funds from Bristol City Council, South Gloucestershire Council and GWR.
