Construction on Hampshire’s Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) scheme is estimated to be completed in early 2012.

It is hoped the BRT scheme will boost public transport between Gosport and Fareham and is part of a wider integration strategy for transport in South Hampshire. Better public transport options, improved traffic management and support for the local economy are all potential benefits of the BRT.

The scheme is being implemented by Transport for South Hampshire (TfSH), a partnership between Hampshire County Council and Portsmouth and Southampton city councils, which aims to improve transport for South Hampshire. The BRT is being built on the site of the former Gosport-Fareham railway line.
