Waterside Passenger Railway Progress

This time around the campaign to restore a passenger service along the existing Waterside railway line seems to be moving really positively.

There have been a couple of recent TV items, coverage by Radio Solent, a number of letters in the local press from different people and support expressed by some key, influential people.

The list is growing by the week, but backing the project are :

  • District Councillor, Alison Hoare.
  • Leader of Southampton City Council, Simon Letts
  • Chairman of Marchwood Parish Council, Fred White
  • Parish Councillor, Keith Petty
  • County Councillor for Hythe & Dibden, Malcolm Wade
  • Lord Ralph Montague (Beaulieu Estates)
  • Adred Drummond (Cadland Estates)
  • City Councillor, Alex Pope
  • City Councillor Lee Whitbread
  • Redbridge Residents Association

I will be very pleased to add any names to this list, on request.
