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 redeveloped bus station is a key component of the Combined Authority and Calderdale Council’s ambitions to transform public transport within Halifax town centre and has been developed as part of the Leeds City Region Transforming Cities Fund programme. 

The new, state-of-the-art bus station will provide safer and improved passenger facilities and access to Halifax town centre for users with walking difficulties or wheelchairs. Stephen George + Partners LLP (SGP) is the architect for the project, while AECOM is lead consultant providing engineering, planning, environment and transport planning. 

SGP’s design will deliver a fully enclosed concourse with 19 Drive-in Reverse-out (DIRO) stands, fully enclosed waiting areas, retail and information facilities under a timber framed concourse and living green roof. 

 The design is intended to provide a safe and welcoming environment that combines contemporary sustainable architecture with the existing listed heritage assets. 

For the fully enclosed bus concourse area, the DIRO bus stands will be separated from the bus concourse by means of a fully glazed screen and automatic doors linked to induction loops within the bus stand area, ensuring the automatic doors will only operate when a bus is parked on the respective bus bay. 

The project has gained Full Business Case approval at the West Yorkshire and York Investment Committee and has also received Detailed Planning Permission. 

The Halifax Bus Station Redevelopment project is planned to complete by March 2023.
