Three Bridges Station
Three Bridges Railway Station Improvement Scheme
Crawley Borough Council, Govia Thameslink Railway, Network Rail and West Sussex County Council are pleased to bring forward proposals to redevelop Three Bridges Station forecourt, create a new entrance to the station from Station Hill and create a vibrant new space with excellent connectivity for all.
These proposals follow feedback from public consultations in 2015 and 2018, extensive consultation with stakeholders and a detailed and wide-ranging traffic modelling exercise.
The aims of the scheme are to:
- Improve the physical environment of the station forecourt area and taxi rank
- Improve provision for picking up/dropping off passengers by car and taxi
- Improve the transport interchange facilities, bus connectivity, pedestrian and cycle links
- Improve access to the station by sustainable forms of transport
- Improve passenger flow by creating a new entrance/exit point at platform 5
- Review parking facilities at the station.
The scheme will benefit all station users as follows:
- A new pedestrian and cycle entrance from Station Hill, enabling people to purchase a ticket and access the rest of the station. This will cut down on journey times for those coming from Maidenbower and Pound Hill
- The provision of dedicated safe spaces for passenger and taxi drop-off and waiting areas and the introduction of cycle provision at the front of the station Increasing transport options for station users, and finally,
- Creating a more welcoming, inviting and safer space for all to enjoy.
