Hampshire County Council appointed Milestone Infrastructure Ltd who carried out the following improvement works in early June 2024:

  • Removal of existing railway tracks in pavement and road.
Scheme overview

Hampshire County Council are working in partnership with South Western Railway and Network Rail to construct a short length of footpath connecting the High Street to the westbound platform (services towards New Forest and Bournemouth) at Totton Station. The footpath will provide a secondary access to the westbound platform which will be step free making it easier for people with mobility impairments and pushchairs.

The following works will be carried out to improve accessibility to Totton Rail Station;

  • Construction of a level footway connecting the southern (westbound) platform to Totton High Street;
  • Construction of an uncontrolled crossing point with tactile paving;
  • Installing new street lighting to accommodate pedestrians;
  • 2m high closed boarded fence to be erected along the perimeter of the footpath.
Please view the location plan.
Funding Arrangements
Funding for the transport capital delivery schemes is separate from the County Council’s revenue budget and savings proposals. In the majority of cases funding comes from external grants and / or Section 106 contribution from developers. This funding usually has conditions that strictly control on how, where and when it can be spent.
