The Combined Authority is funding a new entrance at Bristol Temple Meads. The new eastern entrance is being built at the far end of the existing passenger subway and once complete, will improve access to Bristol Temple Meads allowing a higher volume of passengers to enter and exit the station to the east of the city via the development site on Cattle Market Road.
The renovation will also enhance rail services by adding new railway tracks and signalling in and around Bristol. The network’s capacity will increase, and there are plans for new stations through MetroWest.
The Bristol East Junction comprises more than 50 crossovers, or points, which allow trains to change tracks.
