North Filton and Henbury train stations

New train stations are proposed as part of MetroWest Phase 2 to serve Henbury and North Filton.

MetroWest phase 2 network map showing Bristol Temple Meads being connected to Lawrence Hill, Stapleton Road, new station at Ashley Down, Filton Abbey Wood, new station at North Filton and new station at Henbury via an hourly service. It will also connect to Lawrence Hill, Stapleton Road, new station at Ashley Down, Filton Abbey Wood, Bristol Parkway and Yate via an half hourly service, with a possible extension to Gloucester.

These new train stations will form part of the Henbury spur and a new hourly train service will run between Bristol Temple Meads and Henbury, calling at Ashley Down and North Filton.

The two new stations will provide access to train services for existing residents as well as linking in with major new developments taking place at Filton Airfield.

The next stage for these two stations is a planning application to receive consent from South Gloucestershire Council to build the scheme. Each station will have a separate planning application.

As Henbury station is being built within a flood zone, more time is needed to make sure our designs are suitable. As a result, North Filton planning application will be submitted first.

The above map shows the planned locations for the new North Filton and Henbury stations. North Filton station will be located in the existing railway line passing near Brabazon Hangar in Patchway. Henbury station will be located near where the existing railway line crosses Wyck Beck Road (A4018) in Almondsbury.

North Filton station

North Filton Station will be subject to a planning application shortly.

North Filton train station will be built close to Gloucester Road North, and will link in with the proposed Cribbs/Patchway New Neighbourhood development being built by YTL. It will be served by an hourly service between Bristol Temple Meads and Henbury station, and will be an unstaffed station.

North Filton train station will include:

  • Two platforms, connected by a footbridge and lifts to ensure step-free access for all users
  • Ticket machines on both platforms
  • Cycle parking, under cover, at the entrance to the station
  • Covered waiting areas on both platforms
  • CCTV coverage for the safety and security of users
  • A car park to include spaces for Blue Badge holders as well as general vehicle spaces
  • Nearby bus stops to allow for easy transition between bus and rail

The station will be accessible from the north, via a station square constructed by YTL, with drop-off spaces as well as locations for rail-replacement buses.


Henbury station

Henbury station is the end of the Henbury spur, and is located close to the A4018 with access by foot, cycle, bus and car.

The new Henbury station will include:

  • One platform, as trains will only travel towards Bristol Temple Meads

  • Covered waiting area on the platform
  • CCTV coverage for the safety and security of users
