A multi-million pound investment for transport in and around Bristol is expected to win approval later. It includes funding for the city's first new railway station in 15 years at Portway. It comes as efforts to open the line to Portishead also gathers pace.
The Yeovil MP David Laws is calling for major improvements on rail services through the town.
Mr Laws says the current First Great Western service between Bristol and Weymouth is "woefully inadequate." His comments came in a letter to the Department of Transport on behalf of constituents.
