From the Gazette and Herald

Long-awaited plans for the return of rail to Devizes have taken a major step forward with the backing of £34,000.

The team behind plans for the Devizes Gateway station are pulling together an ambitious business case to be submitted by the end of this year - which will determine the rail future for the town.

Investigations by Atkins are underway into the current transport challenges facing the town and how a station could combat them, but also into if the currently proposed location for the station, in Lydeway near Urchfont, is the most practical site.

The station will bring a “game-changing transformation” and economic growth to the town, say the Devizes Development Partnership (DDP) however, they have stressed this will not change the fabric of town that is often referred to as the hidden gem in Wiltshire’s crown.
