TRANSPORT bosses have asked for the public’s help in a multi-million pound station upgrade.

Network Rail plans to redevelop the concourses at Gatwick to “bring the station into the 21st century”.

Work is set to start this year to improve disabled access and help those carrying luggage to the airport. There will be new staircases, five new lift shafts and eight new escalators to improve access.

The £150 million scheme will also include an eye-catching glass roof and concourse to allow more passengers to pass through the station.

Network Rail said it wants to provide “a station that befits Gatwick’s status as a gateway to the country, with improved facilities providing passengers with smoother and more pleasant journeys”.

The upgrade will be completed between 2020 and 2023, with two years of intensive platforms work until May 2022 and a dedicated timetable to keep passengers on the move. Network Rail wants passengers to share their thoughts on the plans. To take part in the survey visit or follow @NetworkRailSE on Twitter.
