Trees will be replaced in station quarter plan
12:30pm Tuesday 27th August 2013 in News
TWENTY-four trees will be removed as part of improvements to a site in Southampton city centre.
They will be replaced by 24 new trees as part of work to improve the city’s station quarter.
The city council’s planning and rights of way panel has rubberstamped the plan to take down the trees as part of £2.28m public realm improvements to the north of Southampton Central station.
The replacement trees will be laid out in a new arrangement as part of the first phase of the improvement works, which will include new footpath and road surfaces, a new taxi rank, a pedestrian crossing and public realm improvements.
And those improvements are likely to be followed by upgrades to the station’s forecourt and new rail, taxi, cycle and pedestrian facilities.
