Welcome to Three Rivers Rail website!

Welcome to the website of the Three Rivers Rail Partnership, a group of local authorities, local people and the rail industry. Working to promote our train and local bus services, and doing what we can to improve our stations and services.

Why Three Rivers? The rail routes which the partnership covers run alongside, or cross the Avon, Itchen and Test rivers – hence ‘Three Rivers’.

Things are looking good for rail travel in the area: We now have a direct train to Salisbury from Chandler’s Ford, Eastleigh, Southampton Airport and much of the Southampton suburban area. This also improves the service to Dean and Mottisfont Dunbridge and increases the number of trains between Southampton, Romsey and Salisbury, and increases to at least two every hour – Dean and Mottisfont & Dunbridge now have an hourly train service Mondays to Saturdays.

On this website you will find information about trains calling at Salisbury, Dean, Mottisfont & Dunbridge, Redbridge, Millbrook, Southampton, St Denys, Swaythling, Southampton Airport, Eastleigh, Shawford, Winchester & Chandler’s Ford. As well as Bursledon, Hamble, Netley, Sholing, Woolston and Bitterne. There’s also station information and ideas for places you can visit within easy reach of the train: Ancient churches, a stately home, shopping, theatre, cinema, live music, restaurants, pubs, even a Tudor garden and tea room.

Our activities incorporate the Department for Transport’s Community Rail Development Strategy’s 4 pillars:

  1. Providing a voice for the community
  2. Promoting sustainable, healthy and accessible travel
  3. Bringing communities together and supporting diversity and inclusion
  4. Supporting social and economic development

The full strategy can be found at: www.gov.uk/government/publications/community-rail-development-strategy

If you would like to help us – if you live near one of these stations and can be a volunteer on a station adoption scheme, or if you just want to join in our activities please do get in touch.

Many thanks

The Three Rivers Community Rail Partnership has recently "adopted" Salisbury Station. This is a formal agreement between the railways and volunteers to help look after parts of the station.Along with the local railway staff and management we have many ideas about improving the station and initially wish to repaint and refill some platform planters, restock the Commemorative Garden on platform 5 and put up hanging baskets as quick wins. Following that we would like to put some artwork, tourism information or historic photos up in the waiting room and build some more planters in and around the station.We are seeking volunteers or groups to help existing staff undertake these and other projects and provide basic maintenance on an ongoing basis. Any time provided would be on an ad hoc basis for as little or as much as you would like, so if you are interested in helping out as a station adopter please message or phone us. We would also like to hear from you if you have local skills or supplies we could use including plants, compost, timber, planter building, art supplies, etc. We look forward to hearing from you. ...
