Capita Symonds designs new £4m Blackburn bus station

Plans have been submitted for a new £4m bus station in Blackburn.

The new station — designed by Capita Symonds on behalf of Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council — will be situated in the town centre on the site of a former market, adjacent to the shopping centre and a new market development.

The relocation of the station is intended to increase footfall outside the shopping centre and the new market, while maintaining a direct link with the rail station and the nearby cathedral quarter development.
