Coaches have begun stopping at new coach stops at Preston Bus Station.

Work has been ongoing on the southern end of the grade-II listed building as part of its major refurb.

The former taxi rank was modified to work as a coach station and the access roads widened to let the Megabus and National Express coaches in.

Lancashire County Council is restoring the Bus Station, and the new look road layout around by Lords Walk has also been nearly finished.

A new, chargeable, toilet has been introduced and the Bus Station itself only has buses going from one side.

This is due to work due to begin in October this year for the long-delayed Preston Youth Zone.
