Fresh plans to revamp Bulwell bus station will give the town a huge lift, a councillor said.
Earlier this month plans were revealed to upgrade Bulwell bus station with a better waiting environment, new shelters and canopies and upgraded real time information signs.
Around 1.1 million passenger trips were made from Bulwell bus station before the pandemic – and currently more than 600 bus services run through it every day.
She said: “The bus station is not the most inspiring place and this will give it the lift Bulwell needs, it is a fantastic opportunity for the area.
“I am thrilled to bits they will be making it more accessible for wheelchair users.
“Lots of people come to Bulwell market from throughout the city and this will be the makeover it really does need as it has been long overdue a facelift.
“If you improve people’s environment, they’re happier and have pride in the area they live in. It is a win win for everybody.
“It is great that they are looking at installing solar panels or wind turbines in order to meet the council’s carbon neutral target too.”
The project is part of Nottingham and Derby’s Transforming Cities programme, which secured £161 million from the Department for Transport to invest in local transport infrastructure.
