New station at Cosham progresses to next stage

Cosham residents are keeping their fingers crossed after plans for a new £15 million railway station for the town have been submitted by the council to the DfT.

The Wiltshire town currently has no rail access, and it is hoped that relinking it to the network would help reduce reliance on cars, improve connections, bring more jobs and build economic growth for the town.

The plans propose a brand new two-platform station, connected to the Great Western Main Line, providing services to London, Bristol and Reading. The business plan was put together by Wiltshire Council, with support from Corsham Town Council, MP Michelle Donelan and other local stakeholders.


If the project passes all business case stages, it is estimated that work could begin in 2026 with a view to making it operational by 2028.
