Gosport Interchange Improvements

Transforming Cities Fund - bus, taxi, pedestrian and public realm improvements in Gosport.

Last update: July 2021

Scheme overview

The proposed scheme seeks to:

  • Improve the bus interchange facilities at the Gosport Ferry Terminal, served by the Fareham to Gosport Eclipse bus service.  The Gosport Ferry Terminal is a key travel hub to Portsmouth Harbour from which people can access onward links to Isle of Wight via catamaran services, to the wider rail network and bus services across the city region. 

The proposed scheme consists of the following enhancements:

  • Relocation of the existing bus station to the site of the existing taxi rank and Falkland Gardens short stay car park and drop-off/pick-up facility;
  • Relocation of the existing taxi rank and drop-off/ pick-up facility to the western part of the existing bus station site;
  • Provision of alterations to the existing highway network, including the provision of a bus-only link across the High Street, between North and South Cross Street.

The proposed relocation of the bus station will facilitate the provision of a new Waterfront development by Gosport Borough Council, in line with its adopted Gosport Waterfront and Town Centre Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).
