Transforming Cities Fund

Last update: March 2022

Scheme overview

The aim of this scheme is to provide a facility which has a focus on encouraging the use of active and sustainable transport. A mobility hub offer a combination of cycle hire/cargo bikes, e-car club vehicles and e-scooters in addition to high quality cycle parking and access to public transport services for the local urban community. They are located in places which offer access to rail and bus services and have a nearby population to serve e.g. town or local centres. They can also offer facilities such as cafes or ‘pop-up’ retail units, all linked together through high quality public realm and streetscape. They can also act as micro-consolidation points with ‘click & collect’ facilities for a range of services such as parcels, shopping or dry cleaning.

Finally, they may offer community facilities such as cycle training, bike clubs, guide bike rides, ‘bike repairs and servicing maintenance or any other relevant opportunities for supporting community activity.

The proposed Eastleigh Mobility Hub is to be located near to the bus and rail station and to be served by permeable walking and cycling routes, it aims to serve the nearby residential and areas and the town centre and make switching between modes easy, uncomplicated and straight forward.

The Mobility Hub if completed, will be the first in Hampshire.

In March 2020, Hampshire County Council welcomed news of the successful outcome of a funding bids to the Department for Transport. Made jointly with Southampton City Council, Hampshire County Council made a bid for investment designed to improve walking, cycling and public transport within the Southampton City Region. The Department for Transport awarded £57 million to the Southampton City Region from the Transforming Cities Fund (TCF). This funding is for capital investment in infrastructure to support and encourage active and sustainable travel from the outlying residential areas to key economic drivers nearer the City Centre. The majority of the investment is on corridors from Eastleigh, Bursledon and The Waterside/Totton in addition to transport and mobility hubs in Eastleigh and at Southampton Parkway.

Further details of this facility will be available once the preliminary design stage has been complete and will be published here.  Stakeholder and public engagement events to inform communities about the opportunities offered by the implementation of this scheme to be held in 2022/2023.
