Crowborough Station To Go Step-Free

This document on the Government web site is entitled Access for All: 73 Stations Set To Benefit From Additional Funding.

Crowborough station is on the list.

This Google Map shows the 3D image of the station.


  • The current bridge is in the North East corner of the map.
  • The platforms were lengthened and refurbished in 2016 to accept ten-car trains.

Crowborough would appear to be a typical well-built and managed country station.

Installing Step-Free Access

In Winner Announced In The Network Rail Footbridge Design Ideas Competition, I wrote how the competition was won by this bridge.

I think there are three options for using a factory-built bridge like this at Crowborough station.

  1. The new bridge replaces the existing bridge.
  2. A new bridge is placed in a different position and the old one is demolished.
  3. A new bridge is built in addition to the current bridge.

In my view, if the condition of the old bridge is good enough, the third option is preferable.
