Hamilton Bus Station Redevelopment Officially Opens
Hamilton Bus Station, in South Lanarkshire has been officially opened.
The new £5.5m interchange, designed for Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) and South Lanarkshire Council (SLC), provides a much improved passenger experience and an upgraded facility for the local community and the 3 million passengers who use the station annually.
The development included creation of new drive in/reverse out bus apron, fully covered bus stance shelters, new operations building with passenger lounge, ticket office, staff and passenger toilets, crew lounge facilities and a new retail unit, the rerouting of the nearby road network and the reconfiguration of the existing car park.
Glazed canopies provide shelter to the newly created concourse connecting the town centre to the bus and train stations. Illuminated signage is provided at strategic locations to assist customer wayfinding. The extensive use of glass to the building frontage creates passenger waiting areas that are comfortable, light and spacious. Feedback has been positive from passengers, bus operators and our clients.
