Haslemere Railway Station: Works Disruption Information Events, 14th June 2016
Major improvement works have started at Haslemere railway station, to provide more bike parking, improve bus, pedestrian and cycle access and provide more car parking at the station.
There will be major disruption for travellers during the works. For those that pick up and drop off during the station forecourt works (June and July) and for those that park at the station – the main station car park will be COMPLETELY CLOSED from September for several months.
If you have any questions about the decked car park project please come and
meet the project team on Tuesday, 14th June from 5pm – 7pm at Haslemere station in the ticket booking hall. See also SWT’s page about the car park works: https://www.southwesttrains.co.uk/plan-your-journey/planned-improvements/improving-your-railway/station-improvements/haslemere/

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS
There will be considerable disruption for travellers during the railway station works.
Access to the station forecourt will be restricted at times during the improvement works and the main station car park will be completely closed for 3-4 months.
Surrey County Council, in partnership with Haslemere Vision and SWT, has been working to identify and communicate possible alternative ways of getting to the station for those that currently drive.
We are looking for volunteers.
Would you be willing to spend 1 hour being trained by Surrey County Council’s Travel Smart team? You could be part of a team of local volunteers helping to advise train passengers about the different travel options to the station during the car park closure.
To show your interest, please contact the Surrey Travel Smart team firstname.lastname@example.org.
