Bus station revamp survey

Bus station revamp survey

CONSULTATION has started on plans to revamp Dewsbury’s 20-year-old bus station.

The West Yorkshire Combined Authority has launched an online survey asking for the public’s views.

Dewsbury was among the first in the county to get a new-style bus station back in 1995.

The Aldams Road building, used by 20,000 people a day on weekdays, is now due for an internal and external revamp.

Transport committee chairman Coun James Lewis said: “Meeting passenger expectations is important to us.

“We therefore want to know what they think works well and what needs to be improved.”

Kirklees Council cabinet member for place Coun Cathy Scott encouraged participation.

She said: “The bus station is an important place for anyone visiting the town and for many is the first place they see.

“By sharing their views, local people can help make sure any changes reflect the welcoming personality of the town and its people.”

The deadline is Sunday March 29. For details see www.westyorks-ca.gov.uk/dewsbury-survey.
