The Alton Line Users' Association (ALUA)

Area: Hampshire, London, Surrey
Interests: Rail

Founded in 1974, ALUA represents passengers who travel on the Alton-Waterloo line in the South Western Rail Franchise area. ALUA campaigns for more and faster trains between Alton and Waterloo and for restoration of the double track between Farnham and Alton (singled in 1985).

Alton is the railhead of the Watercress Line heritage steam railway, which ALUA also supports, as it does those groups which are currently campaigning for better public transport links with Bordon and between Alton and Medstead & Four Marks.

Rail services on the Ascot-Aldershot-Guildford line and the Reading-Gatwick line are also of concern to ALUA.

In addition it holds an AGM in Alton or Farnham, at which there is a representative from the South Western Rail Franchise company and to which all rail users are invited. ALUA has met with South West Trains and Network Rail managers twice a year and also with local MPs from time to time.

News: ALUA publishes a newsletter which can be accessed on its website.
