The Department for Transport is funding a study into the potential for a new rail station to serve the Devizes Community Area and this development has potential to improve services for customers in the Pewsey, Bedwyn and Hungerford areas. It is proposed that the new station, known as Devizes Gateway will be 3.4 miles from Devizes Market Place and plans for a connecting bus are being developed.
Bedwyn Trains Passenger Group and Pewsey Vale Rail User Group have campaigned for a number of years for improved connections to the West (for Bath, Bristol, Salisbury and the South West etc.) and consideration is now being given to extending the services which currently stop at Bedwyn, through to Westbury, which would enable passengers to travel to Devizes, and also to connect at Westbury for destinations further West.
