Update on Taunton Station

We recently met Mark Youngman, integrated transport manager for GWR. We requested the Travel plan and station development plans. Apparently the plans haven’t been finalised yet partly because of a funding gap’. They have guaranteed funding for 150 additional cycle spaces, that must be spent by Dec 2018. They also have a community based fund that could be used to fund access improvements to the station, although the budget has been allocated up until 2019. Mark said that he would meet us again in the near future, so that we can look at station-town centre linkages, in the context of the station redevelopment, Firepool and the NIDR missing cycle link.
