Southampton Central Train Station Revamped

A £2.4m revamp of Southampton central train station is unveiled today (Monday 11th June).

It now has a bigger ticket hall and waiting room, plus better information screens. The drop-off area has also been improved.

The Transport Secretary Justine Greening's been having a look around this morning.

The station handles about six million visitors a year.

The work is part of Southampton City Council's master plan, which aims to transform the city centre over the next 20 years bringing more than 24,000 new jobs, 5,000 new homes and investment worth £3 billion. 

Southampton City Council put up £800,000 towards the scheme. Other funding has come from South West Trains and the Rail Heritage Trust.
