WORK on the redevelopment of Partick Bus Station is complete, with the first buses due to use the improved facility on Sunday 2 September.
The £2.5million refurbishment includes an increase in the number of bus stances accompanied by improved waiting areas for passengers with integrated lighting, CCTV, seating and real time passenger information now available.
The design also allows a much better flow of traffic through the interchange, segregating bus operations away from other vehicles, and separating pedestrians from the bus movement area.
Strathclyde Partnership for Transport say the number of passengers using Partick rail, subway and bus stations has increased considerably over the last couple of years as a result of new developments in the area.
The layout of the bus interchange incorporates a ‘drive in, drive Out’ style arrangement and has six stances.
Other features are improved weather protection; high-access kerbs for level entry to buses; provision for wheelchairs; seating and a public address system connected to bus control.
