Baroness Kramer, the Minister for Transport, officially opened the new platform on 3 February. A £53M project, it is hoped the new platform will improve capacity and flexibility on the Brighton Line.
The Minister for Transport paid tribute to the many staff who worked on the final commissioning during a blockade over the Christmas period. The project was finished on schedule and budget despite the extreme weather conditions.
Baroness Kramer confirmed that the government had committed a further £50m for enhancements at the airport station. More than 12 million passengers use the station per year.
