History

Opened on the 1st May 1972 on the site of Stoke Gifford marshalling yard which closed on 4th October 1971. The original station was built by Stone & Co. of Bristol and consisted of open platforms connected by an open footbridge. Only very basic booking and waiting facilities were provided.

The station was redeveloped through the year 2000, and a new main building opened on 1st July 2001. A third platform was opened in 2007 with a fourth planned for 2008.
