Network Rail Invest In A New Footbridge For Goring-by-Sea

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Rail Technology Magazine.

It describes work being done at Goring-by-Sea station, which includes.

  • Platform lengthening.
  • Refurbishment of the footbridge.

This Google Map shows the station.

 

Note the footbridge, by the level crossing, at the Western end of the station.

It would appear, that the platform lengthening is being done to support a new timetable, whilst Gatwick Airport station is upgraded.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Arundel Chord built, as has been proposed as a Beeching Reversal project, which I wrote about in Beeching Reversal – Arundel Chord.

I visited on the 8th of December 2020 and took these pictures.

Note.

  1. It appears the Eastbound platform has been extended.
  2. From what I could see of the footbridge, it is certainly showing its age and needs a make-over.
  3. Whilst I was there, the level crossing by the station, was shut for thirteen minutes.

Are Network Rail going to do something about the level crossing?

  1. There was a very odd train stopped at that station when the satellite was passing over.
