The draft states: 'A passenger rail or rapid transit link into central Bristol will have been reinstated, providing a real alternative to residents commuting into Bristol for work'.

FOSBR (Friends of Suburban Bristol Railways) strongly supports the reinstatement of passenger services on the railway line from Portishead to Bristol. We are, however, dismayed to read that a rapid transit link is being considered as an alternative. For the reasons we have set out under CS10, we urge that the words 'or rapid transit' are deleted from this sentence.
