Steelwork progressing on new Halifax Bus Station
Steelwork erection is well underway on the new £15.8M Halifax Bus Station, which is being delivered by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority in partnership with Calderdale Council.
Alongside improved passenger facilities and better access to the town centre, the new bus station will include environmentally friendly features, such as measures to enable the future introduction of electric bus charging points, bike parking and solar panels, as well as a living roof and green wall complete with plants.
Cllr Kim Groves, Chair of Transport for West Yorkshire Combined Authority, said: “We’re pleased to be working in partnership with Calderdale Council on this important scheme, which will make it easier for people to move around our region.
“In these challenging times, it is more important than ever that we continue to invest in a modern, accessible transport network, which supports economic growth by connecting more people with job, training and education opportunities.
“Our region deserves a transport system which fills people with pride, with optimism and, above all, with the confidence that we have a clear direction of travel towards future prosperity for all, while helping us achieve our aim of becoming a net-zero carbon economy by 2038.”
