Plans to redevelop Gloucester Bus Station have been approved by Gloucester City Council.
The £6.4m facility will include bus stands for 12 vehicles arranged in chevron format to allow a drive in, reverse out method of operation. The public concourse is separated by a full height glazed facade which will have automatically controlled doors allowing access to waiting buses.
The building is highly transparent in order to provide maximum visual contact with its surroundings and a calm, airy environment. The width of the public concourse will allow sufficient circulation space as well as waiting and seating areas for individual stands. Passenger information systems, timetable displays and interactive information points will also form part of the facilities.
It is hoped work will start in the forthcoming spring and be completed within 12 months.
