Halifax Bus Station Redevelopment

This project will replace the existing bus station facility which is located to the north of Halifax town centre on the junctions of Broad Street/Northgate and with Winding Road by removing known limitations and tackling issues on the site.

The Halifax bus station aims to deliver a truly transformational public transport hub and gateway into the town centre. The upgrade will mean a better travel experience and a warm and distinctive welcome to Halifax. Key design features include accessibility for all, a bus station which future proofs for electric buses, a seamless blend of modern amenities, architectural features and heritage. The investment will complement the wider transport and regeneration developments within the heart of the town, including the new Trinity Sixth Form college, and planned North Bridge Leisure Centre and Borough Market renovation.  

The planned new bus station features a single, fully enclosed passenger concourse with improved facilities, which ensures the separation of passengers and buses. It would also mean better connectivity with near level walking routes to key destinations across the town centre, such as Dean Clough and The Piece Hall.

Achieving these significant benefits for Halifax and Calderdale, depends upon the Combined Authority finding a way to fund building the new, state-of-the-art bus station, which is forecast to cost £15.4 million.

Proposals for the bus station are therefore being considered for the West Yorkshire bid to the Government’s competitive Transforming Cities Fund in November 2019, on which we are expecting a decision in the spring of 2020.

 We are embarking on some development work to ensure we would be in a position to deliver the bus station by the March 2023 spending deadline that would apply if our bid is successful.
