Phased stand changes at Huddersfield bus station during building overhaul

10 August 2018

Bus users who catch services from Huddersfield Bus Station are being advised to check if they are affected by stand changes which come into effect from Monday 13 August.

Kirklees Council is carrying out a £400,000 overhaul to the structure of the building, which houses a 450-space multi-storey car park over six levels with the Bus Station at ground level. The work, which involves treating the building’s external walls and metal strengthening bars to prevent corrosion, is expected to take 20 weeks.

To ensure the safety of customers, drivers and staff while the work, which began in June, takes place, West Yorkshire Combined Authority, which manages Huddersfield’s Metro Bus Station, will be closing some bus stands and transferring services to alternatives. It is expected that six stands will be affected during each stage of the scheme.
