S&D bridge in Hamworthy.
S&D embankment in Hamworthy.
Open ground ideal for new curve.
The main Bournemouth-Weymouth route near Hamworthy - the new curve can connect near here, there are many options!
The new curve would intersect the SW corner on this map.
One of the conclusions from our southern site visit on Wednesday was that a brand new curve could be built to the north of Hamworthy station, allowing New S&D trains and, eventually, Park and Rides from north of Broadstone and of course main line trains via Ringwood and Wimborne access directly to Bournemouth. At the same time reopening of the original curve into Hamworthy station would allow direct access to Weymouth and also possibly Poole Quay where freight trains and passenger trains in connection with cruise liners could be run.
This whole area is going to become a hive of rail activity in the future, with Broadstone offering a huge variety of trains.
