News: Transport to/from the Parks

Posted on 14th January 2016

I had a long phone call from Peter Lamb, the Facilities Manager at Edwards, earlier this week. He wanted to ask me what if any transport systems have existed between the town’s stations and the business parks.

The reason for his enquiry is that Edwards are closing their operation in Crawley soon to make Burgess Hill their global headquarters. This will involve around 80-90 staff transferring to work in Burgess Hill, and most of them intending to drive each day, probably as one person in each vehicle. Edwards have little room to expand their parking, so Peter was wondering if other companies have transport between stations and the VBP.

It may be that one of the larger employers does have a system of minibuses running from station to business park inmorning and evenings. If that is the case, please let me know or speak directly to Peter on +44 7717 878913 | peter.lamb@edwardsvacuum.com  Maybe there is some room for liaison here?
