History

This station was built by the M.O.D. to replace Filton Junction station. It was opened on the 11th March 1996. In 2004 the station was rebuilt to provide an extra platform face which was brought into use on the 29th June. Before the station was remodelled the junction to the north had one of the worse cases for SPADS in the country, with 12 incidents having been recorded in a report published in 1999.

In the Strategic Rail Authority’s 2005/06 financial year, Filton Abbey Wood was ranked as the 647th most-used station in Great Britain, making it one of the busiest unstaffed stations.
