Holder Mathias replacement for ditched Fosters Cardiff bus station approved

Comment

14 stands for buses does seem rather meagre for a city the size of Cardiff, but this is roughly in line with the 12 bus stands in the downsized bus station to be (eventually) built in Exeter - whereas in Glasgow the bus station (admittedly serving a larger conurbation) has 56 stances. In contrast Plymouth makes do with a new 7 stand long distance coach station, all other buses and coaches being consigned to kerbside stops on a city centre street. In both Exeter and Plymouth the bus stations are city council operations that were allowed to deteriorate to the point of no return, with the sites now being redeveloped primarily as leisure centres. The AJ has covered a variety of new bus stations over the years, but following the recent saga of Preston bus station there's surely the need for a thorough review of the quality of design of city centre public transport facilities across Britain, as in many places bus and coach users seem to get a poor deal compared with users of rail termini - and that includes in London.
