Norwich-based Pentaco Construction will this week begin the revamp of the town’s bus station.
The Transport for Norwich partnership is delivering a programme of improvement works at Norwich Bus Station to enhance the experience for passengers and improve the existing facilities.
Work will include a full refurbishment of the toilets and waiting areas, with external improvements to lighting and additional outdoor seating.
The project, which is expected to be finished in April, will also see trials of new technology including the introduction of voice-activated bus service information in real-time to assist passengers.
Councillor Martin Wilby, Norfolk County Council’s cabinet member for highways and infrastructure and chair of the transforming cities joint said: “I’m delighted to see work get underway which will deliver improved facilities for everyone using the station and would like to thank passengers for their patience whilst work is carried out.
“This project is an important step in our wider long term improvement plans for the city’s public transport infrastructure which we hope to develop further in the new year should we be successful in the next round of government funding.”
This project has been funded through the first phase of the Department for Transport’s Transforming Cities Fund, with a further funding announcement expected in March 2020.
Pentaco Construction undertakes projects from its offices in Norwich and Chelmsford.
