Commuters in north London welcomed the opening of a new £2.4M bus terminus this week, built for London Bus Services in Turnpike Lane.
The existing 1960s bus station was demolished to make way for the new steel canopied terminus, designed by Thomason Partnership with architect Rogers Partnership.
The new terminus should alleviate traffic jams, improving traffic and bus flows around the busy junction between Turnpike Lane and Green Lanes.
Passenger safety should also be improved inside the bus station as the design minimises pedestrian crossings in busy traffic routes.
The project was completed by Kier in four phases over a contract period of 76 weeks, during which time the bus station had to remain open.
