1,000 days with no bus station is ‘an embarrassment’ to Cardiff, say Lib Dems

Friday April 27th will mark 1,000 days since Labour closed Cardiff’s bus station. 

Labour leadership had promised that a new bus station would open by 2016, then 2017, then 2018. Their latest claim is that the bus station will be open by 2021.

The lack of a bus station is harming residents, businesses, the environment, and tourism.

Cardiff Lib Dem Transport Spokesperson, Cllr Emma Sandrey said;

“It's an embarrassment that the capital city of Wales will have been without a bus station for more than six years by the time its built. 

“We have now had more mock-ups than we’ll have stands in the new station, and another set of architects’ drawings will do nothing to allay concerns that we’re going nowhere fast. All the while businesses, bus operators, and our environment continue to suffer.

“The proposed 14 bays is not sufficient, and the pace at which Cardiff is growing raises real concerns about the new station’s capacity. Plans to build a new 700-space car park just a stone throw away will only make congestion and pollution worse.”
