Railway Stations: Hampshire

Volume 468: debated on Thursday 29 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answer of 20 November 2007, Official Report, columns 785-6W, on railway stations in Hampshire, what the schedule is for including in the Railways for All programme those Hampshire railway stations which have not been announced for inclusion in the programme; and if she will make a statement. (168912)

I have been asked to reply.

The Department is currently drawing up the next list of stations to be targeted for investment under the Access for All Programme, and will make an announcement before the end of the year. Stations in Hampshire will be considered, alongside other stations not selected so far, for enhancement during the 2012 to 2015 period.

In addition, annual rounds of Access for All Small Schemes Funding will continue to support smaller scale enhancements, such as the low height ticket counters being installed at Havant, Southampton Central, Farnborough and Brockenhurst over the same period.
