The Durham Bus Station scheme is a multi-million pound redevelopment of the major transport hub that serves Durham city and the wider county.
The new bus station has been designed to increase the overall space for passengers, with increased visibility and safety for buses leaving the station. This includes increasing the reversing area for buses leaving bays and widening the exit onto North Road to improve visibility, with additional pedestrian access also being created.
Inside, there will also be improved facilities including parent and child toilets and a changing places toilet, as well as increased seating and space in the passenger waiting area. The plans also include a two-storey area with office space.
Ground investigations and demolition works have now been completed (Phase 1), with the scheme moving on to construction works which are scheduled to conclude in Spring 2023.
