Improving Horley Station.

Our local MP Sam Gyimah has posted this message below, set up a survey and asked for comments and suggestions for how Horley’s station can be improved

Horley Trains

“Stations across Tandridge and Horley have been awarded funding from Govia Thameslink Railway to provide tangible improvements for passengers. I know what a big difference even small changes can make, and I’m delighted that stations in our area have been awarded this funding. Please share your thoughts, in confidence, on what changes you would like to see at your station. I will then write to Govia to highlight the best, or most popular, ideas for each station.”
