Gatwick already benefits from strong transport links and we are working constantly with our partners to improve them further.

We have a clear vision for a new transport interchange at Gatwick to serve the airport and the local community. The Gatwick Gateway will be focused around the airport’s main surface transport facilities and will support bus, coach, car, taxi, goods vehicle, cycle and pedestrian
movements.

Under all options we would make significant improvements to local transport infrastructure including:

  • Working with Network Rail and train operators to improve services to London and other destinations
  • Improving Junction 9 of the M23 to double capacity, giving better access to Horley and Crawley
  • Working with operators to enhance local bus services as demand increases to make sure there is good bus access for staff working shifts
  • Introducing a Local Highway Development Fund to be spent in conjunction with Local Authorities to fund local highway improvements
  • Developing a connected network of pedestrian and cycle routes

Once the Thameslink Programme is completed in 2018, Gatwick will have direct services to 175 stations, over 1,000 railway and London Underground stations with just one change, and will be served by a train into London every three minutes on average.
