Plans have been drawn up to transform Stockport’s bus station into a transport interchange. Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) is working with Stockport Council and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) to develop the £1bn investment plan.
The proposals include:
TfGM and the other parties is seeking the public’s views on the plans in a series of public drop-in events across July.
Once consultation responses have been considered, an online report will be published before submitting a full planning application later this year. The proposal will include an outline planning application for an adjacent Exchange Street development being led by Stockport Council. This outline application is set to predominantly feature office use with additional retail and restaurant use.
TfGM will be working with bus operators to maintain all bus services during the construction period and will work to ensure any disruption to services, passengers and local residents and businesses is kept to an absolute minimum.
Most bus services will be relocated to a temporary bus station at Heaton Lane car park. Some bus services will run from Mersey Square and others, including coaches, will run from temporary stops in the town centre.
While work is under way, information on changes to services and temporary bus stop locations will be available at the bus station site, in Stockport rail station and online.
