Alongside new passenger facilities and better access to the town centre, plans for the new bus station include environmentally friendly features, such as measures to enable the future introduction of electric bus charging points, bike parking and solar panels.

Overall, the scheme will deliver more green space with an extra 40 trees being planted as well as other environmental benefits.

Further demolition and work has commenced on site meaning disruption to more services. Construction work is expected to continue until summer 2023.
