South Wales Evening Post - - NEWS -

CARDIFF The fi­nal pro­pos­als for Cardiff’s new £100 mil­lion bus sta­tion have been ap­proved by coun­cil­lors. Cardiff Coun­cil’s plan­ning com­mit­tee met on Wed­nes­day and voted to ap­prove the pro­pos­als for the the trans­port in­ter­change in the city cen­tre’s Cen­tral Square. The plans in­clude a 14-bay bus in­ter­change within a con­course area of more than 10,000sq ft, 305 flats in a 22-storey tower block in Wood Street and an­other nine-storey build­ing fronting Mar­land Street, a six-storey of­fice block, a 249-space pri­vate car park and seven ground floor re­tail units. Five stands in the bus in­ter­change could po­ten­tially han­dle coach op­er­a­tors, but the coun­cil wants to lo­cate longdis­tance coaches away from the new bus sta­tion to the south of the rail­way sta­tion, coun­cil­lors were told. The coun­cil hopes the bus sta­tion will be op­er­a­tional in 2021.
