Work starts on new Kirkby Bus Station

WORK on a new bus station for Kirkby Town has started!  Since Sunday 24 January 2016, buses will call at temporary stops sited close to the Station, on Cherryfield Drive, whilst the 6 month redevelopment takes place. The new station will cost in the region of £1.75m and will replace the current 20 year old station with a new modern facility offering better shelters and improved lighting and waiting facilities. The redevelopment will also provide upgraded passenger information and signage, CCTV, Help Points, access kerbs to assist boarding and alighting, and full road resurfacing including better drainage. Businesses in the area will remain open during the redevelopment.

Councillor Ron Abbey, Merseytravel Lead Member for Bus said:- "Merseytravel has remained committed to this project and I am pleased that it is now getting under way. The new station will provide improved facilities for our passengers and also support the wider on-going regeneration of the area."

Knowsley Council's Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Development, Cllr Mike Murphy, said:- "The development of a brand new bus station is another significant and exciting step forward in the regeneration of Kirkby   Town . This new, modern facility will be a key transport hub in Kirkby, linking passengers with the transformed   Town  and the planned new retail developments."
