Public asked for views on bus station redevelopment
Plans for the redevelopment of Telford’s Bus Station are to go on show next week, with a three-day public exhibition taking place in Telford Shopping Centre as part of a wider public consultation.
Members of the public are being invited to view the plans for a new, modern bus station, which will be part-funded via the Marches LEP’s Growth Deal with Government.
The plans are being put forward by the owners of the shopping centre developed in close partnership with Telford & Wrekin Council and bus operator Arriva Midlands and Shires.
The bus station scheme is key in unlocking development as part of the Telford Shopping Centre’s masterplan.
The existing bus station is predominantly the only location for alighting and boarding in the Town Centre, however the existing configuration and aesthetics of the bus station provide an unattractive gateway for the Town Centre.
The bus station acts as a hub and spoke system with the majority of all bus routes connecting at the Town Centre offering an interchange between north & south Telford services. As such, is it important that the redevelopment provides safe, attractive facilities for bus users in Telford & Wrekin which encourage public transport use.
The public exhibition will be held in unit 222, on Telford Shopping Centre’s Wrekin Square at the following times:
Thursday 3 March: 12 – 8pm
Friday 4 March: 8am – 17.30pm
Saturday 5 March: 10am – 4pm
