Littlehaven station to get £4.5m investment boost
11:00am Sunday 22nd September 2013 in News
A railway station is to get a £4.5 million investment boost.
The money will go towards rebuilding and extending platforms to accommodate longer trains at Littlehaven, in Horsham.
The revamp will help reduce peak congestion with motorists and pedestrians, as the barrier will be down for less time on the nearby level crossing.
Tim Robinson, Network Rail route manager for Sussex, said: “Station facilities across the route are being improved as part of our commitment to provide passengers with a better network and additional capacity to meet demand.
“The station will remain open throughout the work and we will continue to liaise with Southern to minimise any disruption.” As well as platform replacement and extensions, access ramps will be rebuilt and lighting, signage, passenger information systems and waiting shelters will be upgraded.
Councillor Helena Croft, of Horsham District Council, said: “I am extremely pleased about Network Rail’s plans.
“Investing £4.5 million in this well-used and important station for local residents confirms their long-term commitment to not only maintain but improve the service.”
