Take a look at the new train station at Brabazon...
Brabazon will be a thriving new neighbourhood for Bristol, with the supersonic YTL Arena Bristol at its heart. And, with a dedicated MetroBus route and a new rail station set to be completed by 2024, it is set to be the best-connected new community in the city.
Today, YTL Developments and Network Rail released the first computer-generated images of the proposed new station at Brabazon. Once completed, the station will connect our thriving new neighbourhood and YTL Arena Bristol to Bristol Temple Meads in less than 15 minutes. The completion of the station is subject to approval of the planning application which is being submitted this month.
YTL Developments is contributing over £1million to the cost of the railway station, which forms part of our integrated travel plan for the new neighbourhood.
The new train station will connect with the MetroBus as it passes through Brabazon, allowing seamless journeys across North Bristol by public transport. The station will also link to the walking routes and cycle paths that criss-cross Brabazon, encouraging active travel.
The station will also be accessible to all. There will be step-free access, covered waiting areas on both platforms and dedicated blue-badge parking spaces. There will also be covered cycle parking, while the station will also be secure thanks to CCTV, so there’s no need to worry about leaving your bike whilst you hop on the train to work.
Details of the station come just a few weeks after YTL Developments appointed consultants to develop designs for Brabazon Park, which will be just 200m West of the new station and directly in front of YTL Arena Bristol. The new park, which is expected to open to the public in 2024, is set to be the largest new urban public park in the South West for 50 years.
