Call for talks on railway station
A GROUP campaigning for the reopening of Saltford railway station has called on Bath & North East Somerset Council to hold a formal public consultation on the plans.
The Saltford Station Campaign held a public meeting where residents had the chance to express their views on plans to bring the village's station, which was shut in 1970, back into use as part of a major upgrade of local rail services in the Bristol area.
The group now wants the council to provide detailed information for residents on the facts and issues surrounding the idea.
Members claim a "significant majority" of households in Saltford are in favour of reopening the station.
