Delayed coach interchange opens in Milton Keynes

A £2.6m bus interchange in Milton Keynes which should have been completed in 2009 but suffered a string of delays, has been opened to the public.

The Coachway, near Junction 14 of the M1, was running on Saturday morning.

Its opening was set back three times during the three-year project due to drainage problems and bad weather.

The site is used by National Express coaches, local buses and taxis and offers a park and ride service.

Milton Keynes Council said the key feature of the building is its "striking" roof canopy, which provides shelter for passengers.

It houses a seated area for 100 people, cafe, shop and a ticket office.

It replaces the former Coachway in Silbury Boulevard.
