People are invited to comment on proposals to improve access and safety at Three Bridges Train Station.

Crawley Borough Council in partnership with Southern Rail and West Sussex County Council, are putting forward two proposals for people to comment on which will help Crawley’s councillors make a decision in
February next year.

The aim of the proposals, which focus on the forecourt and/or road, is to make the station safer and easier to access.

Large numbers of pedestrians, cyclists, cars and public transport can make the area confusing and unsafe during peak hours.

There arc two options to consider and both have different benefits and potential short-term issues.

Option one proposes changes that impact the€ way pedestrians, cyclists, cars, buses and taxis access and move around the station forecourt, including changes to the highway.

Option two impacts how cars and taxis move around the station without making changes to the exit and entrance or the highway.

A series of exhibitions will be held in the town where proposals can be viewe€d, also giving visitors an opportunity to ask questions.

These take place on:

  • Wednesday 19 November, 5pm-7pm, Three Bridges Station
  • Saturday 22 November, 10am-2pm, Crawley Library
  • Wednesday 26 November, 10am-2pm, County Mall Crawley
  • Thursday 27 November, 10am-2pm, County Mall Crawley
  • Saturday 29 November, 10am-12pm, Three Bridges Station

Work could start in 2016, depending on the scheme, and is expected to last between 6 and l2 months. It’s likely to be carried out in phases to minimise disruption.
