A launch ceremony took place last week to mark the completion of Gatwick Airport’s £3.8 million transport hub upgrade.
The transport hub is used by three million people each year and links the local bus network with the airport and its railway station. The upgrade sees new facilities for people with reduced mobility; this includes two new lifts from road-level bus stops into the terminals and station, and new pedestrian and wheelchair accessible routes. The new infrastructure improves an important transport hub for local passengers who arrive by bus, and for workers employed at the airport. It will also benefit people who work at the nearby Manor Royal Business District and Crawley Town Centre.
The improved bus infrastructure comes soon after the redevelopment of Gatwick’s railway station was announced with a £148,000,000 improvement programme.
