New £3.2m Worksop bus station opens
Worksop’s new £3.2m bus station has opened. Located at the junction of Newcastle Street and Watson Road, the new station replaces existing bus stops on Hardy Street and Ryton Street. The bus station has been designed and project managed by Nottinghamshire County Council with Wates Construction appointed as the main contractor for the site. Work started on it in August last year. The County Council has been working with Stagecoach and Bassetlaw District Council throughout the project. The new station uses design elements used successfully at other NCC bus stations such as those at Retford, Newark and Mansfield. It features a staffed information point, toilets, seating, electronic information screens and CCTV. Eight bus bays cater not only for existing demand in the town but also allow for future growth.
