Ex-Stroud MP urges railway’s top brass to stop kicking the can down the road and make a decision


AN ardent campaigner for more than three decades, ex-Stroud MP David Drew has urged the railway authorities to “stop kicking the can down the road” and make a decision to back the idea of reopening the Stroudwater Station, which was closed more than 50 years ago.

Trains currently run through Stonehouse station on the Gloucester to Swindon line, although there is another line in the town that goes to Bristol.

Stonehouse Bristol Road closed to passengers in 1965 as part of the Beeching cuts to the railways.

Meanwhile, Mr Drew has revealed he will be standing for election as a district councillor in May, and will be standing to represent Farmhill and Paganhill ward.
