It is equipped with:

  • A ticket machine
  • Smart ticket readers

Making the work possible

We are grateful to our partners the West of England Combined Authority, principal funders of the station building, who will also cover operating costs for the first three years, Bristol City Council promoters of the station who made the initial application for funding along with a significant financial contribution, the Department for Transport for funding from the New Station Fund along with guidance and support, and Network Rail who also provided funding and managed the construction of the station.

This station could not have been built without the support and collaboration of each of the partners.
