First Great Western has welcomed the Department for Transport’s announcement confirming provision of additional train carriages for the Bristol area.
The news will see more than 900 additional seats at peak times across the city, and is great news for customers in the area.
First Great Western Deputy Managing Director, Andy Mellors said:
“This is great news for our customers in the Bristol Area and a step forward to helping address the capacity issues created by the popularity of our services across the south west.
“With support from Members of Parliament, local authorities and other key partners we have been in discussions with the Department for Transport for some time about the need for this capacity, and we are delighted these have come to fruition.”
