Anyone can now keep an eye on the regeneration
of Bedford bus station.
A webcam is now available on the Council
website, providing regular updates of the work to build the new
Bedford Bus Station.
Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said:
“The multi million pound redevelopment of Bedford bus station is a
vital project for Bedford Borough and we want local residents to be
able to keep right up to date with progress.
“The cameras will provide up to the minute
footage of the scheme and allow anyone to check the progress of
this major development in their town centre as it continues to take
Richard Overton, Managing Director of local
company Regenology Ltd, who installed the cameras, said: "It's
great to see technology that we developed at our office in Bedford
being used on such an exciting local project. We hope local
residents will enjoy following the progress of the building work,
and are really looking forward to creating some great films later
in the year."
The redevelopment of the Bedford bus station
area started in 2013. Work to date has included the construction of
a new surface car park at Greyfriars, new public toilets and the
continuing refurbishment of Allhallows multi-storey car park.
The current stage is the demolition and
replacement of the bus station building which is now underway and
scheduled to be completed later this year.
Later this year, the pictures taken will be
used to create time lapse sequences, showing the progress made.
