New platform being built at Gatwick Airport station

15th February 2013

Over the next 12 months there will be significant construction work at Gatwick Airport Station whilst a new platform (7) is built to enable platforms 5 and 6 to become dedicated for Gatwick Express services.

This will require platform 6 to be closed from Monday 11 February until Saturday 27 April whilst the work takes place. As a consequence, it will be necessary to cancel the 05:15 London Victoria to Gatwick service Mondays to Fridays during this time.

It will also be necessary to close platform 5 overnight Mondays to Thursdays between 21:30 – 05:30 from Monday 18 February to Friday 15 March and from Tuesday 2 April to Friday 19 April.

During this time the following Gatwick Express services will be cancelled Monday to Thursdays 21:15, 21:45, 22:15 and 22:45 London Victoria to Gatwick and 22:05, 22:35, 23:05 and 23:35 Gatwick to London Victoria. However, there are alternative train services which passengers can use. Details can be found on the document below:

Gatwick Airport Station - changes to service provision

All other train services calling at Gatwick Airport will run as advertised.

Posters are displayed on platforms to inform passengers of the need to check train times with National Rail Enquiries as there will also be some weekend changes as the work progresses.
