Here are links to forum threads on those projects already discussed on the Coffee Shop. Very brief summaries of the other - please quote / start separate threads (and I will come back and edit in links) to discuss your project.

Congratulations to ...

Bodmin General Platform 2: 54,000 - see ((here))
New platform at Bodmin General heritage station to enable additional trains to operate to Bodmin Parkway.

North Cornwall Railway Heritage Play Areas: 35,057
Breathe new life into a play area while promoting the heritage of Camelford Station.

Saltash Station Refurbishment Project: 40,000 - see ((here))
The former station building had laid in a near derelict state for a number of years. With financial support from GWR, Cornwall Council, and the Railway Heritage Trust, they are well on the way to securing the buildings future and refurbishment.

St Ives Station Pedestrian Signage and Way Marking: 5,000
This project will provide improved signage and way marking to encourage pedestrians to use a safer and more accessible route into the town.

Looe Valley Line Heritage centre: 40,000 - see ((here))
Create a heritage centre in the 1901 Liskeard & Looe Railway building (platform 3) at Liskeard.

Penzance Station onward connectivity: 15,900
The proposal includes: a new link to multi-use path through station car park; improved wayfinding to the path; improved signage to the bus station and town centre; extend platform 4 heritage fencing along the old motor raildock to replace existing fencing. There is also potential to provide cycle docking facilities on disused rail land.

Public Transport RTPI at Mainline Stations: 26,500
Provide bus real time information at key stations as part of One Public Transport System for Cornwall.

Across the whole GW area, there are 39 successful CCIF bids (about 1 in 4 of those submitted) ... a couple of others have also made the press and forum comment already - New lighting for Pewsey, 3,000 and Taunton to Bishops Lydeard connecting trains, 60,000
