About this event

Graham Construction started work on this £10 million project in September 2015, with MottMacDonald as lead consultant. Austin Smith: Lord is the architect for the project, with archaeology undertaken by Earthworks Archaeology.

Located on Hoole Way roundabout, the new interchange will replace the existing bus station which is no longer capable of catering for the large number of visitors who visit the city. Expected to handle 1,020 bus movements per day including national coach journeys, it will improve public transport access into the city, reduce congestion and provide better integration between rail users, pedestrians and cyclists.

The new fully accessible, contemporary bus interchange will incorporate 12 new bus stands, coffee shops and newsagents, improved public realm and pedestrian linkages and full Changing Places facilities. The grass roof will improve air quality, biodiversity and wildlife.

We will meet at 5:45pm for 6:00pm, for a walk around site.

The site entrance is at the junction of Gorse Stacks and Frodsham Street, on the north side of the city centre. Please bring your own PPE, details given below.

After the site visit, around 7pm, we will take a short walk to Rambolls`s Chester offices for refreshments. The evening will be rounded off by a presentation on various aspects of the project, with speakers from the contractor and architect.

Please bring the following PPE with you to this visit: Hard hat, safety boots, high-viz vest or similar, gloves.

Please note that there is no car parking directly at the site. The nearest public car park is the underground car park on George Street (CH1 3EQ), which is just West of the site entrance.

We will walk to Ramboll`s office after the visit. Their address is 2nd Floor, The Exchange, St. John Street, Chester CH1 1DA. You might want to take this into account when planning where to park.
