Three Bridges Station – Loss of right hand turn out of the station
Crawley Borough Council, in partnership with Govia Thameslink Railway, Network Rail and West Sussex County Council, has updated proposals to improve access to the site around Three Bridges Station.
Unfortunately, to realise station improvements the current proposal removes the right hand turn out of the station, with a suggestion that people wishing to go eastward should head down to the square-about in order to change direction.
A local resident has started an e-Petition on the Crawley Borough Councils website to encourage the developers to reconsider this aspect of the proposal.
Wording of the e-Petition
We the undersigned petition the council to commence a further consultation on this issue, including viable options for the retention of the right turn out of the station forecourt, and ensuring that the consultation period lasts for a sufficient period of time and is adequately publicised in order to ensure that all key stakeholders are able to participate fully.
We wish to register our concerns at the implications of the loss of the right turn out of Three Bridges Station proposed as part of the re-design proposals which have recently been the subject of consultation by Crawley Borough Council, due to the negative effects we believe this will have on local residents. We also wish to express our concern about the short timeframe in which the consultation took place, and the level of publicity afforded to ensuring that all interested parties were able to have their say effectively
