We asked

For your feedback on the development of the Crawley Growth Programme’s  Eastern and Station gateway projects. Engagement was undertaken between May and July 2018 to inform the public and key stakeholders of the proposed improvements within these schemes. The events presented the early feasibility designs ahead of moving forward to preliminary design stage, in preparation of tendering for a Design and Build contractor to deliver the two schemes.

We asked for your feedback and an indication of whether there was support for the schemes.

The Eastern and Station Gateway schemes are identified projects in the Crawley Growth Programme; this is a £60m package which will unlock jobs, business space and homes.

The Eastern Gateway scheme is a £8.3 million scheme which will deliver public space and connectivity improvements to support key development opportunities at the Town Hall, County Buildings, Telford Place and Crawley College. 

The scheme covers the eastern half of The Boulevard, Exchange Road, the southern end of Northgate Avenue, College Road (including the roundabout), Southgate Avenue, up to and including the junction with Station Way.

The Station Gateway scheme is a £5.3 million project which aims to provide an improved public space and connectivity between rail and bus stations and improved town centre facilities, incorporating a dedicated left turn for buses from Friary Way to Station Way. 

This scheme supports a prestigious private development that will include a new railway station.  The scheme will also complement and accommodate proposals for improved bus shelters at the bus station and the Eastern Gateway Scheme and enhanced pedestrian and cycle access in the vicinity.

The Station Gateway Scheme extends from Friary Way, along Station Way connecting with Southgate Avenue.  A plan of the scheme can be seen at the links given on the bottom of the page.

The proposals are expected to be delivered during 2020-2021.
