CHESTER BUS INTERCHANGE

Chester Bus Interchange

Chester Bus Interchange

Chester Bus Interchange is an exciting and inspiring project, an integral part of Chester’s One City Plan. Planning permission was approved in December 2014 enabling further design and construction development to commence for the new bus interchange at Gorse Stacks in Chester City Centre. The bus interchange is described as a ‘key enabling’ project because it has replaced the current Princess Street exchange.

The new £10 million bus station forms an important visual element to the historic City Gateway site. Creating and delivering a high quality Public Realm forecourt area and concourse to a new Bus Interchange, it presents a strong civic face to the roundabout and approach, whilst complementing the composition.

We are delighted to have worked with Chester West and Chester Council on the new Chester Bus Interchange which bring a number of excellent transport related benefits to the city. These include better integration between bus services and the rail station and, it is hoped, less congestion as more people use bus services instead of private cars within the city centre and surrounds.
