SWR stations set to receive facelift after £1.5 million investment

South Western Railway (SWR) has announced that the company is spending over £1.5 million on re-painting stations across the network.

The first phase of the programme is already underway, with repainting currently taking place at 10 stations, including the flagship stations of Wimbledon, Portsmouth and Southsea and Basingstoke.

The second phase is set to begin at the start of the autumn, which will see another tranche of stations receiving a lick of paint.

All those stations which are part of the programme will have a complete re-paint, with both interior and exterior walls receiving a welcome facelift.

Alan Penlington, South Western Railway’s Director of Customer Experience, said:

“When SWR took over the South Western franchise three years ago, we agreed that we would improve and maintain our stations. This significant investment in our stations is just one example of how we are honouring this commitment.

“Our stations sit at the heart of the communities we serve and play a key role in providing the quality service our customers rightly expect and deserve. This re-painting programme will smarten up a whole host of our stations and enhance the overall experience of using our network”.
