Gatwick Airport has released new images of its new rail station, on the day that Government minister, Penny Mordaunt MP, announced £10 million of funding to secure the redevelopment of the transport hub.
The £120.5 million redesign will transform the station and passenger experience, with work scheduled to start in 2017 and complete in 2020.
The £10 million announced today by the Department for Communities and Local Government minister was funding that the Coast to Capital Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) will put toward the station’s redevelopment.
Gatwick will also contribute £30m, Network Rail £30m, with Government contributing the rest.
Improvements to the new station include:
- A doubling in size of the concourse area to reduce congestion and improve the passenger experience
• More escalators and lifts to improve access to all platforms
• Intuitive passenger flow and clear concise information
The improvements will see the rail station comfortably manage the expected growth in air passengers using the single runway airport, with demand at the station set to increase by 5 million to 20 million rail passengers a year by 2025.
Guy Stephenson, Gatwick’s Chief Commercial Officer, said:
“Gatwick has transformed itself in recent years and millions more passengers are benefiting from the world class service the airport now offers. The redeveloped station will complement Gatwick’s transformation and our passengers will experience a seamless transition between the airport and the new station.
“The whole project is a fantastic example of the public and private sector working together to deliver a world class transport hub. It’s not just our air passengers that will benefit from the transformation, over 1 million other business travelers using Gatwick station every year.”
This major station upgrade will be delivered alongside a significant increase in capacity on rail services through Gatwick, between Brighton and London, as a result of committed and planned enhancements. These will improve resilience and the quality of rail service through Gatwick, including:
- New Gatwick Express trains from 2016 and new Thameslink trains by 2018
• Connections to Crossrail at Farringdon in 2019
• New twice hourly direct connections to Peterborough and Cambridge
• A train to central London every 2.5 minutes by 2025
• Quicker journey times to the West End and City, than from Heathrow
• 15 million people brought within 60 minutes of Gatwick
