Halifax Bus Station redevelopment
This project will see Halifax Bus Station replaced with a new £17.7 million state-of-the-art facility delivered by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority in partnership with Calderdale Council.
Plans for the new Halifax Bus Station include two additional bus stands and three additional layover bays, with level bus boarding throughout and an additional step-free entrance.
The new bus station will provide passengers with better access and more shops, as well as real-time bus and rail information to help with onward journeys.
Alongside improved passenger facilities and better access to the town centre, plans also include environmentally friendly features, such as measures to enable the future introduction of electric bus charging points, bike parking and solar panels, as well as a living roof complete with plants. Overall, the scheme will deliver more green space with an extra 40 trees being planted.
Construction work is expected to start in September 2021 and continue until summer 2023.
The new bus station, which was granted planning permission in autumn 2020, is part of a wider package of schemes to transform the way people travel in and around the town.
It is being delivered with money from the Leeds City Region Transforming Cities Fund, which is helping to transform gateways to towns and cities across the region by making it easier to walk, cycle and use public transport.
