We are working with Hampshire County Council to improve access to and from Aldershot railway station.
About the railway station improvements
We recognise Aldershot railway station is a key gateway into the town centre and an important interchange for trains and buses, but its forecourt and approach are in need of improvement.
We identified the site as a priority in the Rushmoor Local Plan and in the .
There are two linked parts to the scheme:
Access to the station
We have been working with Hampshire County Council to develop plans to improve vehicle, cycle and pedestrian access to the station.
These plans include:
- Windsor Way and the southern section of Arthur Street will become two-way between Victoria Road and Station Road
- There will be a new cycle route from the A323, through the Wellesley development, to the railway station
Station forecourt improvements
Hampshire County Council has developed proposals to improve the station forecourt and access to it. These includes:
- Better pedestrian access between the station and the town centre
- Improved access for buses, taxis and to the car park
You can find out more about both schemes on the improving access to Aldershot railway station page on Hampshire County Council's website.
External funding for regeneration
We were successful in securing £200,000 of government grant funding from the Enterprise M3 LEP to help with development costs.
