Local Transport Infrastructure

Gatwick Airport is a major local employer and while I welcome the positive economic impact Gatwick has on our area, it is imperative that it works in the interest of our local communities.

Any expansion in the number of flights and passengers must also be seen in the context of the impact on noise, local road and rail infrastructure and the wider environment.

It is vital that Gatwick engages fully and collaboratively with all stakeholders and I am in regular discussions with Gatwick, local parish councils, local authorities and neighbouring MPs.

While the number of rail journeys made from local stations has diminished markedly since pre Covid I know that many constituents rely on our local rail services for both work and leisure and I am in regular contact with GTR – our local rail operator – and Network Rail about constituents’ concerns. I am determined to see improved station infrastructure between Horsham and Crawley.

I am pleased that RMT members have voted to accept a pay deal, ending their involvement in a long-running series of rail strikes. This marks a significant step towards resolving industrial disputes on the railway and is a path to delivering long overdue reforms.
