Stockport bus station to be revamped
Stockport bus station is to be developed into a modern facility.
From Monday 30 November, construction work will begin to develop Heaton Lane car park into a temporary bus station. This will allow services to run when work begins in early 2021 to transform the existing bus station into a revamped transport interchange.
The new interchange will have twenty bus stands, a fully accessible, covered passenger concourse with seated waiting areas, real-time bus and train travel information screens, a Travelshop for tickets and travel advice, CCTV coverage, baby changing facilities and a ‘Changing Places’ toilet. The transport hub will be connected to the A6 by a lift, which will also open out onto the new, two-acre public park on the roof of the interchange building, next to the residential block.
Construction of the new interchange scheme will start in early 2021, with completion estimated for 2023. The residential development is expected to open in 2024.
