Contractor Vinci Construction UK is to build a new landmark bus station in Stoke-on-Trent as part of the £350M City Sentral shopping and leisure development.
The bus station development, being led by Stoke-on-Trent City Council in partnership with developer Realis, has been designed by Grimshaw Architects. It replaces a 1960s building and work is due to be completed by the end of the year.
“Over the next few years Stoke-on-Trent city centre will start to look very different as major projects such as the regional new shopping centre, bus station and improvements to the public realm area’s are developed,” said Stoke-on-Trent City Council cabinet member for regeneration councillor Ruth Rosenau. “The new city centre bus station will create an important facility and stunning new gateway in to the city centre. It is exciting to see the project progressing to the next stage with Vinci.”
