Three Bridges Corridor

Three Bridges Railway Station Improvement Scheme

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.

A revised concept design for the scheme has been developed as part of the Crawley Growth Programme. The scheme takes into account the feedback obtained from the original public consultation that took place in November 2015 and more recent consultation carried out in February 2018, with changes proposed in the following key areas:

  • The creation of additional parking spaces at the station;

  • The provision at the front of the station of an enlarged taxi rank in an accessible location with a two lane exit, with an increased capacity for up to 22 taxis;

  • The provision of a 20-minute pick-up and drop-off area for up to 17 cars, which will be used for occasional rail replacement bus services;

  • The introduction of additional pedestrian crossings for safely accessing and exiting the station;

  • The introduction of new walking and cycle routes into the station alongside new cycle parking;

  • The introduction of new “superhub” bus stops

  • The addition of a bus shelter and the relocation of a bus stop.

  • Creation of a new pick-up and drop-off point along Station Hill for up to five vehicles – i.e. Eastern Access provision for bus passengers, pedestrians and cyclists

Worth Park Cycle Improvements

Connectivity for both cyclists and pedestrians has been improved thanks to a £500,000 scheme, delivered as art of the Crawley Growth Programme .

Completed this week (10 June 2018) and comprising a 1km-long, shared use cycleway, the scheme connects Station Hill in the west along Worth Park Avenue to Ridley’s Corner in the east and along sections of Worth Road.

The existing infrastructure has been upgraded to provide cyclists with a safer route in this location by widening the footways and converting them to shared cycle routes, installing clear signage and dedicating specific areas for cyclists to leave and re-join the carriageway.
