Blackburn station contract terminated
Blackburn Council has terminated its contract with Thomas Barnes, the builders of the city’s £4.7m bus station project. A replacement contractor is now being sought. The station is part of the £40m Pennine Reach transport investment and was due to be complete by the end of 2014.
Executive Member for Regeneration, Cllr Phil Riley, said, ‘We have taken decisive action to ensure that the bus station progresses alongside the other major schemes in the town centre including the Cathedral Quarter. We have terminated the contract with Thomas Barnes and we are proceeding with procuring a contractor to complete the development.’
