A revised concept design for the scheme, part of the Crawley Growth Programme, takes into account the feedback from the public and stakeholders since the last consultation in 2015. This includes a new eastern access for pedestrians and cyclists to the station with a vehicle pick-up and drop-off point along Station Hill, an enlarged taxi waiting area and the introduction of more pedestrian crossings in and around the station area.
The council is hosting several information sessions for the public to attend:
Monday 12th February – 5.00pm-7.30pm, Three Bridges Station
Wednesday 14th February – 10.00am-4.00pm, County Mall
Thursday 22th February – 4.00pm-7.00pm, Crawley Library
Saturday 24th February – 10.00am-2.00pm, Three Bridges Station
Tuesday 27th February – 6.30am to 9.30am, Three Bridges Station
Wednesday 28th February – 2.30pm-5.30pm, Three Bridges Station
Cabinet member for Planning and Economic Development Councillor Peter Smith, said: “Three Bridges is a vital gateway in and out of Crawley and it is important to us that the scheme meets the needs of residents and visitors.”
“We are listening to what people have to say, so I would encourage everyone to come to one of our sessions and let us know what you think.”
Network Rail, route enhancement manager, Paul Donald, said: “We fully support the Crawley Growth Programme plans to improve connectivity for pedestrians, cyclists and motorist at Three Bridges station. Well connected stations are a vital link for local communities and mean better journeys for rail passengers.”
Stephen Hillier, West Sussex County Council Lead Cabinet Member for the Crawley Growth Programme, said: “These proposals are aimed at improving safety and access to Three Bridges Station – one of the key priorities in the Crawley Growth Programme. Public feedback would be particularly appreciated on these design proposals as the station is such a vital transport link.”
Jonathan Sharrock, Chief Executive at Coast to Capital said: “We are working closely with partners in improving rail infrastructure across the region and we are fully supportive of the proposed upgrades to Three Bridges station. These upgrades will be crucial in improving the accessibility to the network and will greatly benefit the wider Crawley Growth Programme. We look forward to seeing future developments as they arise”
