New Track Clearance 2015   - click on a photo to enlarge

New clearance of vegetation from the trackbed from Portishead to Pill took place between January and March 2015, to enable a full topographical survey to be undertaken in Spring 2015. Further clearance was done during 2015. This was needed so that GRIP 3 & 4 engineering design work can progress. See News 19 Jan 2015.


Final clearance prior to track reconstruction is expected in 2018.


Preliminary track clearance took place in 2013 – photos …
