Customers at many of South Western Railway’s (SWR) stations across the network are set to benefit from the latest round of a multi-million pound repainting scheme.

The stations that have been repainted are Sunningdale and Windsor & Eton Riverside (Berkshire); Axminster, Feniton, Honiton, Whimple (Devon); Branksome, Christchurch, Hamworthy, Parkstone, Upwey, Wareham and Wool (Dorset); Andover, Ashurst New Forest, Cosham, Grateley, Hedge End, Hilsea, Hinton Admiral, Liphook, Lymington Pier, Lymington Town, MIcheldever, Overton, Petersfield, Southampton Central, Sway and Winchester (Hampshire); Brading, Ryde Esplanade, Ryde St John (IOW); Barnes, Chessington North, Chessington South, Fulwell, Hampton, Hampton Wick, Kew Bridge, Norbiton, Queenstown Road, Richmond, St Margaret’s and Strawberry Hill (SW London); Crewkerne (Somerset); Addlestone, Chertsey, Egham, Farncombe, Hersham, Milford, Stoneleigh, Thames Ditton, Witley, Woking and Worplesdon (Surrey) and Salisbury (Wiltshire).
A further round of repainting will start later this year, which will see a further 40 stations across the network refreshed.
Christian Neill, South Western Railway’s Director of Customer Experience, said: “At South Western Railway, we want to offer our customers the very best experience for the entirety of their journey with us – including as they pass through our stations.
“Our ongoing station repainting programme is just one way that we are improving the SWR experience for customers using our services. We hope the smarter new look of the stations benefitting from this round of improvements will make their journey with us even more enjoyable.”
