Three groups of local residents have made successful CAT funding applications, for Bus Shelters in their local communities.
Replacement Bus Shelter - Blackbrook Road, Fareham: £2,800 has been awarded towards the cost of replacing old bus shelter in Blackbrook Road which did not have the capacity for seating, with a new bus shelter that does have seating.
Installation of two new Bus Shelters - Hillson Drive, Fareham: £4,500 has been awarded towards the installation of 2 new bus shelters along Hillson Drive. The first shelter is to be installed on the North bound side and the second shelter on the South Bound side of Hillson Drive, Fareham opposite St Columba's Church.
Bus Shelter Southampton Hill, Titchfield: Residents of Titchfield applied for funding to purchase and install a bus shelter at Southampton Hill in Titchfield. At present bus service users have no place to rest and shelter from the rain when waiting for buses at the Southampton Hill bus stop. A grant of £4,800 has been awarded to this project.
Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Councillor Seán Woodward: "I am pleased that the Council has been able to support the local community with grants from the Community Fund. I hope the new bus shelters will help to ensure residents can use the public transport more comfortably."
