Pilning Station Group was set up to represent users and potential users of Pilning Station, who were dismayed by the demolition of the station footbridge in 2016. This resulted in the closure of the westbound platform and reduced the station’s service to “one direction only”. Our purpose is to press for easily-achievable “quick win” improvements (e.g. reinstatement of the 13:34 service, provision of a Monday-Friday “travel to work/college” service around 07:30, restoration of station lighting), and to deliver the message about the importance and potential of the station to the authorities and other organisations who make decisions about its operation and its future. We believe that local residents and businesses will greatly benefit from a well maintained station with a regular train service. We stay in touch with South Gloucestershire Council, Pilning and Severn Beach Parish Council, West of England Combined Authority, Network Rail, Transport Focus, GWR, Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways, SevernNet and other agencies, to promote the interests of the station.
Here are the videos of some of our past presentations.
