Shop Refurbishment

ALLHALLOWS SHOP REFURB UNDERWAY

 

The next stages of the multi-million pound project to create a new Bus Station for Bedford are now underway with works commencing on 14-28 Allhallows, the parade of shops which back on to the bus station building.

The improvement works include: re-roofing, new shop fronts, windows and cladding panels and external improvements including a refurbishment of the canopy, all of which will help to integrate the shop parade with the new bus station buildings.

 

In addition, the final construction phase of the new bus station is well underway. Work will continue throughout the winter months with the new Bus Station and Travel and Tourism Centre set to be officially opened in February.

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “We have needed a regenerated bus station area for decades and the upgrading of the shops fronting onto Allhallows is the latest feature of the radical improvements which are now taking place. The work continues the modernisation and enhancement of the area, making it more attractive for local residents and businesses alike.”

 

“It’s great to see the work taking shape, knowing that the brand new Bedford Bus Station will be a facility we can all be proud of as a gateway to the town centre."

 

The regeneration project has already delivered a series of improvements in the bus station area, including the popular Greyfriars new surface car park, the refurbished and newly-clad Allhallows multi storey car park, new toilets and more.

Improvements to the public realm areas in Greenhill and Thurlow Street are also underway. These include new paving, landscaping, street furniture and underground recycling bins.


The webcam showing up to the minute progress of the construction of the new bus station is still live via www.bedford.gov.uk/busstation. The camera has been slightly raised to show progress on 14-28 Allhallows as well.
