More support in this article for reviving this scheme abandoned in 2007 the revived version will now link Portsmouth to Southampton rather then just to Fareham potentially using the Netley section of the Coastway West heavy rail (Southern and GWR are considering switching all services to operate via Eastleigh and Southampton Airport - GWR already operate some services via this route. That would leave just the hourly slow SWT service on the Netley line. which is perceived as unlikely to be economically viable as heavy rail.

Preposed routes in more detail

Fareham - Welborne, Hedge End, Eastleigh- Southampton Airport

Eastleigh- Southampton Airport,- St Marys - Cruise Terminal - Central Southampton - Central Station

St Marys Wollston, Netley Segensworth (P&R)

Marchwood (P&R) Totton,- Romsey (P&R) Chandlers Ford to Eastleigh

Ambition is to have Eastleigh to St Marys open by 2020 running on Little used track next to the current mainline then utilising the old Southampton Terminus and Southampton Docks line,

the Cruise terminal to Central station section and St Marys (New Station interchange) to Woolston section would both be street running

It is hoped the rest will be up and running by 2040
