Stagecoach begin the countdown for the opening of Andover's new bus station facility

23 Mar 2014

The new high-quality refurbished bus station for Andover Town Centre opens this Sunday, 13 July 2014.

The start-of-the art building station is light, airy and features a secure, covered passenger lounge with seating and toilet facilities also available. Built on the same site as the previous bus station, the building provides essential office space for Stagecoach, Test Valley Community Services, Shopmobility and a new café.

Pete Robinson, Stagecoach's Operations Manager said: “The opening of the new bus station is fantastic news for both our drivers and Passengers, who we feel will really see the positive effect this will have on the delivery of their bus services."

The new facility will be fully operational from this Sunday and it’s anticipated that it will increase the number of bus passengers especially given major developments in East Anton, Picket Twenty and Andover Airfield.

Temporary stops have been used during construction, once open, the temporary stops in West Street and Western Avenue will cease, and passengers will be able to use the new, purpose built facility.

Regional Managing Director for Stagecoach, Andrew Dyer said: "This is a great example of Hampshire County Council and Test Valley Borough Council working together to improve bus travel and passenger facilities throughout the town. I am delighted that it will be ready to open this weekend. The new facility will make it easier for residents to travel by bus, and help to reduce traffic around the Town Centre."
