Petition to save footbridge at Alton Station

By Stephen Lewis Friends of Alton Station

Sunday, 17 July 2016


I am chair of Friends of Alton Station, a voluntary not for profit membership association formed to support the improvement of the railway station in Alton, Hampshire.


After protracted negotiations, Network Rail have finally given FAS an ultimatum to find likely sources of external funding, possibly as much as £500k, before the end of December 2016. Network Rail have offered their budgeted removal costs of £250k to the pot if we are able to find other funding. Therefore, there is a new urgency to take action.

We are asking you to our epetition to show your support. Apart from joining FAS (see Joining page of this website) as an additional way of showing your support, we are not asking you for any kind of financial input. However, if you know of people or funding bodies who could help our cause, we would be very glad to hear from you. Please follow the link below to add your name to our epetition:
