Just a notice of the date for a meeting ... but you'll notice I'm posting in TransWilts rather than in the London to Bristol board.

TransWilts accounts for less than 10% (well less than 10%!) of passengers arriving at and leaving from Chippenham.  However, it's the smaller lines / thinner services that seem to be disproportionately generating community interest, thus my homing of the thread here.   I will follow up on this thread with links, etc, closer to the time (and please feel free to nudge me as it's my TransWilts boss, Paul Johnson who's the lead person on this one, and I can find out more and post an update).

P.S. Already on the July agenda
1. Update on the Chippenham Station - new gatelines performance
2. Progress on an information/poster site at the station
3. Update on Electrification and wider rail issues in Wiltshire
4. Update on the Public Realm projects around the station including northern lift and access.
5. Progress on the Live Departure information to be displayed in the Town Hall information area.

Venue to be confirmed - early days of the group and they've tried several place / not yet found the ideal!

Do you have something you would like to add to this thread, or would you like to raise a new question at the Coffee Shop? Please [register] (it is free) if you have not done so before, or login (at the top of this page) if you already have an account - we would love to read what you have to say!

You can find out more about how this forum works [here] - that will link you to a copy of the forum agreement that you can read before you join, and tell you very much more about how we operate. We are an independent forum, provided and run by customers of Great Western Railway, for customers of Great Western Railway and we welcome railway professionals as members too, in either a personal or official capacity. Views expressed in posts are not necessarily the views of the operators of the forum.

As well as posting messages onto existing threads, and starting new subjects, members can communicate with each other through personal messages if they wish. And once members have made a certain number of posts, they will automatically be admitted to the "frequent posters club", where subjects not-for-public-domain are discussed; anything from the occasional rant to meetups we may be having ...
