19 January 2024
Simon Warburton, Executive Director of Transport at the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, said:
“Following the closure of Bradford Interchange bus station, contractors were brought in to survey the condition of the building and assess damage.
“The initial advice we have received has confirmed that a potential risk to public safety remains, so the bus station will remain closed for at least two months to ensure these issues can be assessed.
“We are working to install more temporary bus shelter facilities at locations around the city to provide improved waiting facilities, including real time screens for next bus departures.
“We are sorry for any disruption caused by the closure but want to assure people that public safety is our top priority, and the bus station will not be opened until we can do so safely.
“We remain committed to ensuring that the wider city centre improvement works are on track for Bradford City of Culture 2025.”
