New bus station for Radcliffe
Bury Council, in partnership with Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), has awarded the contract for a jointly funded enhanced bus station in Radcliffe Town Centre as part of a regeneration programme for the town.
The bus station will be relocated to the current Dale Street car park and will offer stepped seating areas, stair and ramp access, and high quality planting when it is completed in late 2015. Passengers will also benefit from new purpose-built shelters and CCTV.
Chair of the TfGM Committee, Cllr Andrew Fender, said, ‘The new bus station is good news for Radcliffe and shows our commitment to continually improve the transport infrastructure across Greater Manchester and beyond. Once complete, the new bus station will provide a modern, high quality gateway to the town centre for bus passengers, improving public transport links to jobs, education and leisure in the Radcliffe area.’
