The regeneration site is in central Bristol, one of the country’s most productive regions.

Before the pandemic, Bristol contributed an annual £15bn to the UK economy. The city is integral to the West of England’s £39bn economy, and this project is expected to bring £1.6bn to the city annually.

Temple Quarter Developments

The investment in the area will support residential and mixed-use developments, creating new jobs, business opportunities, and affordable housing. This is going to be achieved by converting disused brownfield sites around the station into a distinct, modern urban environment, creating a vibrant destination for all in the city. The main developments for Temple Quarter are:

  • The Friary and Goods Yard
  • Temple Gate
  • Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus (a University of Bristol development)
  • Temple Island
  • Temple Square and Engine Shed 2
  • Silverthorne Island

Developments at the site

Temple Meads railway station

Updating this station is integral to the Temple Quarter's future success and growth. After the project's completion, the station will link to the Temple Quarter Enterprise Campus at the University of Bristol. This will allow leading R&D staff to connect with local and regional businesses.

North, east, and south entrances will also be added to Brunel's famous station.

A new city gateway and transport hub

The area around the station will be revamped with housing, hospitality, and shopping outlets. This will add a new area to live, socialise, and shop. A new integrated transport hub will:

  • Provide connections for pedestrians, cyclists, and the city’s bus networks.
  • Make it easier to travel around the city or to and from the region.
  • Provide improved public spaces around the station.
