Over £4m has been spent at Horsham station and passengers are now benefiting from a range of improvements including a new station layout, better retail facilities and new, fully accessible toilets.
Mark Ruddy, our route managing director for Sussex said: “Facilities in stations across Sussex continue to improve thanks to the National Station Improvement Programme and work by Network Rail and Southern Railway. More and more passengers are using the railway today and they quite rightly expect and deserve a better standard of facilities and level of information than ever before.
“Horsham station has been vastly improved and is a great example of the positive impact this level of investment in stations is making across the south of England.”
Network Rail have:
- improved the station layout to provide more space and better shopping
- improved the access to a lift which provides step-free access to platforms
- installed new fully accessible toilets
- installed new, modern platform canopies to give better cover and a lighter, brighter area
- improved the forecourt area, creatd extra parking spaces and increased cycle storage with £165,000 of funding from West Sussex County Council
National Stations Improvement Programme
The £150m National Stations Improvement Programme funding from the Government delivers better stations across England and Wales and £1.88m of this funding has been spent to rejuvenate Horsham station.
