Gatwick Airport Rail Station Development

The present Gatwick Airport Station experiences significant passenger congestion, both at platform level, and in the existing Station Concourse. Whilst a number of rail improvements to the station were delivered in 2013, the station still suffers from congestion, and passenger circulation is not optimal.


A new Station Concourse will be constructed above Platforms 5, 6 & 7, dedicated to passengers arriving at the Airport. The existing Station Concourse is to be modified to cater for passengers leaving the Airport.
