Haymarket Bus Station
Our £13.5 million plans for a new bus station on the existing Haymarket site were approved by our planning committee last year. We are now progressing the scheme which is a key part of the Connecting Leicester vision to reconnect the city.
We were successful in gaining £3.5 million from the Department for Transport’s Local Pinch Point Fund, which recognises the impact the scheme will have on reducing congestion.
Our redevelopment proposals include:
- adding extra bus stands and relocate nearby on-street bus stops to the new station
- increasing footpath widths to improve the area for pedestrians
- removing the roundabout at the junction of Charles Street and Belgrave Gate
- introducing open public spaces, new plant schemes and street furniture.
