Walsall's Bradford Place bus station reopens after revamp

A West Midlands town's main bus station has reopened after a £430,000 revamp.

New bus shelters have been installed as well as road work being carried out in and around Walsall's station, transport authority Centro said.

The interchange, called Bradford Place, has been closed for five weeks while the work was completed and reopened on Sunday, the spokesman added.

The refurbishment was carried out as part of a review of buses in Wolverhampton and west Walsall.

Councillor Angus Adams, chairman of Centro, which covers the West Midlands, said: "Centro and Walsall Council have worked closely together to monitor and control traffic flow in the area, reduce congestion to help buses operate more reliably and provide a better environment for residents, shoppers, businesses and bus users."
