New station planned for Wiltshire

Designs have been unveiled for a new Wilton Parkway station, near Salisbury in Wiltshire. 

The station would be built alongside an existing bus park and ride site, close to the former Wilton North station that closed in 1955. It would be on the Salisbury to Bristol line, and be part of the TransWilts route across the county (RAIL 781). 

A brochure funded by Wilton Town Council claims it could open by 2019, and would “provide new capacity for passengers using direct trains to London, Southampton, Swindon, Bristol and Cardiff, and support sustainable access to Salisbury with a highly attractive five-minute journey time”.
