The preliminary clearance of vegetation from the track in these photos between Quays Avenue and the junction with the existing freight line near Pill was done by North Somerset Council in 2013. This was to enable investigation work on the trackbed, culverts and bridges etc.


Further clearance was done in Jan/Feb 2015 to enable a full topographical survey to be undertaken. See 2015 photos


Final clearance prior to track reconstruction is expected in 2017.
