Continue to run through trains from Bristol to Waterloo via Trowbridge
The Department for Transport has specified that the direct trains from Bristol, Keynsham, Bath, Bradford-on-Avon and Trowbridge to London (Waterloo) via Salisbury cease in December (2021). We ask that they continue to run pending consultation and effective ongoing provision.
This is a well used service. No practical alternative is available or offered. It provides the only through trains from London to Trowbridge, Bradford-on-Avon, Oldfield Park and Keynsham. It provides the only through services from Bristol and Bath to South London. It connects to much of the South East. It provides much needed extra capacity
The future service might run as an extension of MetroWest services. This should be done with consultation.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
