The images will go on display at an exhibition on Tuesday (14 June) at Exeter Guildhall from 8am until 8pm.
The new, modern bus station will replace the tired and dated bus station in Paris Street and will be built alongside the new St Sidwell’s Point leisure complex.
Cllr Phil Bialyk, Lead Councillor for Sport and Health & Wellbeing, urged people to get along to Tuesday’s exhibition and see the new designs.
“We’ve listened to everyone’s comments and feedback and incorporated these into the new designs. Tuesday’s exhibition is a chance for people to see what we are proposing and how the new bus station might look.
“We will soon have a modern bus station fit for the 21st Century that, along with the St Sidwell’s Point leisure complex will form a dramatic gateway to the city. The new bus station forms part of a long-overdue regeneration of this much run down part of the city.”
Around 650 people attended the last exhibition and many of the features asked for by members of the public have been incorporated in these detailed designs. These include:
• A covered waiting and boarding area
• Departure information screens
• Seating and wheelchair spaces
• A staffed information counter
• Same bus usually going from the same stand
• Audible information announcements
• Car/taxi drop off point
• Refreshments kiosk
• Cycle parking
Feedback from the last exhibition is now online at Exeter.gov.uk/busstation
While the new bus station is being built, a temporary bus station will need to be set up within the city centre.
The City Council is looking at possible locations and last night held a meeting to discuss using the Triangle Car Park as a temporary solution.
Cllr Bialyk said the meeting went well and he was pleased with the turnout: “I’d like to thank all those who came along. It’s great that people are getting involved in the future of this great city and we got some very valuable feedback on the night.”
A total of 52 people completed feedback forms. The Council will now analyse the feedback and keep people informed on the proposals for a temporary bus station.”
“Nothing has been decided yet and people are welcome to pop along to the exhibition on Tuesday and see the plans that were shown at last night’s meeting. These are also on our website at Exeter.gov.uk/busstation ”
