Project Story

West Yorkshire Combined Authority has chosen Willmott Dixon Interiors to lead the refurbishment of Leeds Bus Station.

The 36-week project comprises the refurbishment of the station concourse, with contemporary, durable wall and floor finishes, replacement lighting and roof ventilation, new passenger seating, and real time information displays and signage. The travel centre is to be refurbished and made open to the concourse, while the existing drivers’ accommodation will be relocated. Externally, the entrance canopies will be replaced with larger, more visually attractive canopies and signage. New wall cladding will be installed to increase visibility of the station and a ramp and steps will be added to the station’s York Street entrance. Works will be carried out while the bus station, travel centre, retail units and the adjoining Nation Express Coach Station remain in operation, with a maximum of six bus bays taken out of use at any one time.

The project will be delivered by a team including WSP as project manager; Enjoy Design Ltd as architect and principal designer; and Waterman Building Services as structural engineer.

The refurbishment of Leeds Bus Station has been procured through SCAPE and is targeted to deliver a 14% social return on investment with a minimum of 5% added social value.
Key Challenges
  • Work to be completed within Covid-19 government guidelines.
  • Ensure that the Bus Station maintains capacity throughout the construction works.
  • Access for deliveries is carefully pre-planned to minimise disruption to the operators activities.
