The Devizes area with a population of around 31,000 is the largest town in Wiltshire not to be serviced by rail.
The DDP and Wiltshire Council are working very closely with Great Western Railway, Network Rail and the DfT to develop the business case. In May 2020 the Devizes Gateway project was selected as one of 10 successful “Restore your Railway” schemes for initial business case funding.
A review of potential sites along the route identified a location close to the Clock Inn Park, near Lydeway, where the track is flat and straight. The site is 3.4 miles from the Market Place and easily accessible via the A342, whereas other locations are further from the town centre and less favourable in terms of rail access. It is proposed that there will be a regular shuttle bus to the station as well as easy cycling and walking routes. For for further information please click here.
