MP calls for station shelter


GWR will undertake a feasibility study on the possibility of having a new shelter installed at Cam & Dursley railway station.

Stroud MP Siobhan Baillie met with the rail operator and Cam & Dursley Transport Group to see the problems at the station. 

Ms Baillie wrote to GWR earlier this year to ask for the shelter, but received a no. Not taking no for an answer she asked for a representative to come and see first-hand the issue and discuss them with the transport group representative, David Smith.

Now it will commission the study and speak to Gloucestershire County Council about placing a shelter on the car park it owns to see what the options are. 

Ms Baillie said: “I’m really delighted GWR came along, saw the obvious problem of too many passengers and not enough shelters and it will look to take action.

“Thank you to David from Cam & Dursley Transport Group who have been so key to raising local issues and have been with me every step of the way on this one.

“The station is a positive for our area but passengers should have the right to wait for a train out of the rain.”
