Calls for Railway Village bus ban over damage to streets and buildings

Buses could be routed away from the town’s historic Railway Village to protect the Victorian buildings and the structure of the streets.

At the moment six routes use the streets of the conservation area just south of the main railway line which was built in the mid-19th century as housing for Great Western Railway workers. The routes are 1, 1A, 5, 19, 19A and 22.

But many think those buses should have their routes amended to avoid the Bristol Street boundary of the conservation area, which is now a Heritage Action Zone, and Emlyn Square at its heart – with the routes going no further into the area than Faringdon Road, its southern boundary.

Wouldn't that route them away from the Station?
