A site meeting at Alton station on Monday to discuss the forecourt redevelopment produced some positive results.

Plans to cut dropping-off parking spaces from four to three will allow better manoeuvrability for buses from Station Road into the forecourt.

There will be further research into installing a real-time dot matrix bus information display at the bus stop, and two new street lights will be put up in Station Road.

Two benches are set to be put outside the station and there will be more car park CCTV. With the Watercress Line in mind, old-style lamp fittings will be installed and British Rail green paint will be used where appropriate.
