Melksham passenger numbers grew by 23% last year to 74,666. This growth rate is substantially above the rest of the GWR region. In total the Melksham passenger growth is 676% since the TransWilts service started in December 2013.
Our thanks for the fantastic community support for our proposals for a Hub/Café at Melksham Station. Melksham's Area Board, Town Council, Melksham Without Council and Bowerhill Villager have in total committed £17,000 matched funding supporting TransWilts GWR CCIF grant application.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself – I am Sophie Martin, TransWilts new Community Rail Officer.
I am very excited for this new opportunity in community rail and am keen to help promote and develop the services on the TransWilts line.
