Improving access to railway stations in Hampshire

Background

Hampshire County Council is working with its partners to improve access to a number of railway stations in Hampshire by the use of sustainable forms of transport. Our partners in this work are South West Trains, Network Rail, District Councils and local bus operators.

With the help of funding from the Department for Transport Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF), the County Council is producing a total of nine station travel plans for a number of stations across Hampshire as part of the MyJourney awareness campaign and the Better Connected South Hampshire project.

Each plan contains an action plan, which is reviewed annually by the steering group. The steering group comprises representatives from each partner: the County Council, South West Trains, Network Rail, the relevant District Council and local bus operators.

Eight railway plans have been adopted by the County Council so far: The station travel plan (STP) for Farnborough (main station) was adopted on 24 July 2012, Fleet STP was adopted on 6 November 2012, Aldershot, Andover and Basingstoke STPs were all adopted on 2 April 2013 and the STPs for Havant, Fareham and Totton were adopted on 23 July 2013.

The final Station Travel Plan (for Winchester Station) is currently in draft form and will be considered for approval by Councillor Seán Woodward, Executive Member for Economy, Transport and Environment at Hampshire County Council in September 2014.
