METRO TRAVEL INTERCHANGE, BRADFORD

Bradford City Interchange brings into one area all the out of town bus services, over 50 per cent of the local services, and all the railway services (except for services to Ilkley and Keighley). The development follows from decisions made by the City Council and British railway, and the planning considerations, architectural considerations and the provision of facilities within the interchange are described in this article. The interchange, as described, includes an underground car park for 48 cars; a bus station with six passenger islands and an overall roof, providing up to 62 bus stands of which 25 are for two buses each; a railway station with four passenger platforms, travel centre, red star parcel facilities and rail lost property; a coach park; a bus depot and maintenance workshops for 180 buses; offices and ancillary accommodation; a passenger concourse with associated amenities. In an appraisal of the facilities provided the author presents background information on the history of the development, which was completed at a cost of found16M and which is now owned and run by Metro, West Yorkshire's passenger transport executive. Details are provided on element costs, finishes and fittings, services, and the contractors involved in the construction of the project. /TRRL/
