Footbridge over Havant station to undergo essential repairs

Work to repair and strengthen the footbridge over Havant station will be carried out by Hampshire County Council from Friday 8 March

Mar 7 2024

Councillor Nick Adams-King, Hampshire County Council’s Cabinet Lead for Universal Services, said: “We must now undertake essential maintenance work on Havant station bridge to ensure that it remains serviceable for members of the public. This will require a temporary closure of the bridge so that our contractors can complete the work safely. I would like to thank everyone in advance for their patience whilst this work is completed.”

The temporary closure of the footbridge will be necessary from Monday 11 March 2024 until Friday 22 March 2024. A diversion will be in place for pedestrians and cyclists to safely cross the railway line while the footbridge is closed.

Councillor Adams-King added: “We know that the rail bridge is an important link for people moving around Havant as well as rail passengers. We are working on a detailed design for a new footbridge and continuing to work with Havant Borough Council to explore opportunities to fund this replacement. In the meantime, these essential repairs will extend the life of the current structure.”
