Re-open old lines and stations
VAST sums were spent on Bridge Valley Road to repair the weakened rock face. Yet the work dragged on and on.
This left the commuting Bristol tax payer not only frustrated but faced with a bill costing a small fortune.
At the time there was criticism of the council's lack of foresight by failing to fill in an historic rail tunnel along the Portway whilst carrying out repairs to the rock face.
But these railway tracks were successful in the past, and could well serve Bristol in the future.

It's not rocket science, to those who have worked in light and heavy industry.
The City of Bristol has long been overtaken by the car.
We are overpopulated with cars, vans, lorries, the latter contributing to the past demise of the train.
Time now to reverse the gridlock and madness of the highways by going back to opening up as many as possible past tracks and stations.
We need direct affordable transport with sensible fares to reach and serve the city, all suburbs included, with surrounding towns.
Furthermore installing light rail or a metro, leaving the inner city, a pedestrian friendly easy accessible place.
People arriving, walking safely past these shops, businesses rather than driving by, are more likely to spend and invest money into businesses and retail outlets, which must stimulate Bristol's economy also providing central employment.
