This week Stockport Council approved our plans to transform the town's bus station into a modern and eye-catching interchange.

Along with funding also being secured for a new cycling and walking bridge, which would link the interchange with Stockport rail station, the project will form a key part of a wider £1 billion regeneration of the town centre.

Located alongside the A6 and Mersey Square, the multi-million pound development will be funded by Transport for Greater Manchester, Stockport Council and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), with support from central government through the Greater Manchester Local Growth Deal programme.

The interchange will have a fully accessible, covered passenger concourse with seated waiting areas, Travelshop for tickets and travel advice, and both bus and train travel information screens.

Other features will include accessible toilets, complete with baby changing facilities and a ‘Changing Places’* toilet, and enhanced CCTV coverage.

The other main element of the development will be a residential building off Daw Bank with up to 200 apartments and associated car parking, offering further attractive high-quality living space in the town centre.
