Next stages underway!
The next stages of the multi-million pound project to create a
new Bedford bus station are now underway.
The regeneration project has already delivered a series of
improvements in the bus station area, including the popular new
surface car park, the refurbished and newly-clad multi storey, the
brand new toilets and more. Now, a string of additional projects to
regenerate the bus station area are underway, including
construction of the bus station building itself.
Works to 14-28 Allhallows, the parade of shops which back on to the
bus station building, has now started. The works include a
replacement roof, new shop fronts and external improvements, which
will help to integrate with the new bus station buildings.
In addition, the next construction phase of the new bus station
building is now underway with the installation of the steel frame
for the new building. Finally, improvements to the public areas in
Greenhill and Thurlow Street are also underway. These include new
paving, landscaping, street furniture and underground recycling
Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “We have needed a
regenerated bus station area for decades, and it's fantastic to the
difference already made by the work under this project so
“We now have a string of further phases kicking off, including
construction of the steel frame of the bus station building itself.
It’s great to see it taking shape, knowing that the brand new
Bedford Bus Station will be a facility we can actually be proud of
as a gateway to the town centre."
