Major restoration work on Preston’s crumbling grade-II listed Bus Station get into full swing from Monday (7 November).Advertisement
Passengers who use buses on Stands 61 to 80 will find some changes to their routine.
Due to internal concourse works and redevelopment work these stands are out of action and buses will leave from different stands.
The Lancashire County Council information centre is also temporarily relocating, it’s moving to the Information office net to the newsagent near stand 52.
The work is part of a £24m plan for the Bus Station that includes creating the Preston Youth Zone on the western concourse of the building.
The subway which leads from the southern end of the Bus Station to the Guild Hall is also to be permanently closed from Monday 14 November.
Anyone wishing to use this route is going to need to leave the Bus Station via gate 10.
And a reminder the Bus Station car park’s north entry and exit ramps have been closed since early October and won’t reopen until February 2017.
Stands one to nine are also currently fenced off as part of the building work.
Detailed plan for the refurbishment of the Bus Station, built in the 1960s, were submitted to Preston City Council in mid-September.
