Demolition work begins on £48m Bolton interchange site

Demolition has started on the site of Bolton's new £48 million transport interchange, with an expected completion date to be early in 2014.

The work, which is being carried out but contractors MJ Finnigan, follows a number of pre-demolition measures, such as utility disconnections and archaeological studies, being completed on the properties within the site.

The work is part of a large project aimed at transforming Bolton town centre and will provide an up-to-date transport system for local commuters.

Councillor Cliff Morris, leader of Bolton council, is pleased that the work is underway. He said: “We’re working hard to keep our town centre development programme moving and the transport interchange is a key part of our strategy.”

The project is being funded through Greater Manchester Transport Fund and will support the council's larger town centre transport plans, which include a cycle hub as part of the areas new cycling initiative.

Once demolition is complete, the interchange site will become home to a new bus station and the facilities needed to link it with the train station, located opposite.

The car parks to the rear of the site will remain open throughout the demolition period, but many footpaths will be closed off for the purposes of health and safety.
