Horsham Station Refurbishment

July 24, 2011 · Posted in Roads & Transport 

Refurbishment work will soon start at Horsham railway station. Over the next year the extensive work at the station will include:

• A new second station entrance to the main station building
• Re-arrangement of the internal station building layout which will give:
- easier access and circulation for passengers, including direct access to the passenger lifts from inside the station
- a better location for the ticket windows which will become height adjustable to make it easier for those in wheelchairs to access the windows
- more retail facilities
• Refurbishment of platform toilets
• Reorganisation and marking of the forecourt, bus/taxi/drop off area and car parks
• Additional car parking spaces
• Additional cycle parking spaces
• Renewal of the platform canopies

The work will take place between August 2011 and June 2012 and is a collaboration between the Department for Transport’s National Station Improvement Programme, Network Rail, Southern and West Sussex County Council. The station will remain open for train services throughout the project with the work phased to help minimise disruption. A temporary ticket office will be available so passengers can continue to buy tickets from the station.
