The new station is located on the site of the previous Ashley Hill Station. The station will be used by the local community, who will benefit from improvements to walking and cycling access. Paths to the station entrance will be realigned and the gradient reduced to ensure the station is fully accessible to all users.
Initially services will be between Bristol Temple Meads and Henbury, calling at stations between Bristol Temple Meads and Filton Abbey Wood before branching onto the Henbury Line, where there will be new stations at Brabazon (formerly North Filton, for the new Arena) and Henbury.
The access to the new station is being delivered in partnership with Bristol City Council, while the design and build of the station itself is being managed by Network Rail.
The opening date is likely to be in 2023. Bristol City Council are working with Network Rail to refine this date.
