Key aims and challenges

The former bus station in Market Place was decommissioned and a pedestrianised area created with the installation of bollards. 

A new bus station, complete with shelters and street furniture, was constructed on the site of the public car park on Grosvenor Road, complete with hard and soft landscaping.

The car park itself was completely rebuilt, resurfaced and relined. A trolley shelter was installed for the adjacent Co-Operative food store. Drainage, street lighting, signage and street furniture were also installed across the site.

Particular care and sensitivity was required for an historic, Grade 2 listed mud wall, which borders the northern edge of the car park site.

Highway improvement works were carried out to the junction of Eastgate and Grosvenor Road, which involved widening the footways and installing new tactile crossings.

Grosvenor Road was fully resurfaced and relined. A mini-roundabout was reconstructed using high-containment kerbs.
