Wigan bus station consultation announced
Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) has launched a public consultation on a proposed new bus station for Wigan. The facility is planned to have: a covered concourse with an enhanced waiting environment; an improved Travelshop; high quality, fully accessible public toilets and baby change facilities; as well as a new public realm with seating and cycle parking areas. The plans form part of the wider Greater Manchester Local Growth Deal Programme which is being funded by central government and local contributions. The consultation runs until 20 December 2015. Work is due to start on site in 2017, with the facility open for use by the end of 2018.
