Car park to close for 10 days as transport hub takes shape

 
Created on 04/05/2022 @ 15:02

 

A large part of the ‘Spar Car Park’ will be closed for 10 days in May as the new transport interchange takes shape in the heart of the town.

The final phase for the transformation of the car park off Church Street will begin on May 10, meaning that the lion’s share of the area will have to close, but the smaller car park on the tourist information centre side will remain open.

Once complete, the new transport interchange will incorporate a bus station, car parking, taxi rank and large covered bike shelter. Ideally situated close to the town centre, with easy access to the shops, the tourist information centre, toilets, and train station.

“The location and layout of the new transport interchange was developed through close consultation with the town’s key stakeholders,” explained Nigel Brinn, Executive Director Economy and Environment.

“With such close proximity to the town centre and other transport links the new development is perfectly placed for encouraging more visitors to Welshpool and has been built to include both environmental and biodiversity enhancements.”

The new Welshpool Transport Interchange is due to be fully operational by the end of May.
