Windows fitted at new bus station development

Contractors working on Swansea’s new city centre bus station have begun the job of fitting hundreds of panes of glass to the front of the development.

Work is surging ahead at the site of the old Quadrant bus station where the new multi million pound transport facility is rapidly taking shape.

400 tonnes of steel have already been bolted together to make the steel frame of the building, and more recently, the external roof section has been fitted.

Business people in the city have welcomed the visible progress on site. Alan Wallace, Manager of the Quadrant Shopping Centre, said,”I’m pleased to see how much progress is being made. It’s looking more like a bus station now and I think most people will be excited about the prospect of the new station opening.”

When completed, the new station will house 20 bus bays, three coach stands, a modern passenger waiting area, ticketing services and Shopmobility facilities.

Cllr John Hague, Cabinet Member for the Environment in Swansea Council, said: “We are now starting to see the new bus station take shape.

“The new bus station will be a huge asset for the city and will help improve public transport for passengers.”

The station will also include state-of-the-art Changing Places facilities specially designed for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities as well as other serious impairments such as spinal injuries, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis or an acquired brain injury.

The project has received significant funding from the Welsh Assembly Government and the Wales European Funding Office.
