Curtis Moore is delighted to announce that the Bolton Interchange project is complete and now open to passengers.
The £48m Interchange project welcomed its first passenger vehicle in September 2017, with Bolton Council leader, Councilor Cliff Morris, and Councilor Guy Harkin, Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) Committee Vice-Chair, opening the Interchange on 4th September. The transport hub brings a brand-new rail and bus interchange, which also includes a Cycle Hub and ample office space.
Curtis Moore worked together with main contractor Kier Construction on this project to deliver the roofing and cladding works to the concourse building as well as the roofing works to the crew and operations building.
The project involved using a variety of materials including 3300m2 Kingspan Topdek roofing panels, 600m2 Bauder single ply & Green roof system, 1000m2 of PPC Plank soffit system and 200m2 of Kingspan MR cladding panels. Curtis Moore also installed the bespoke fascia installed in the ticket office as part of the project which was delivered by Transport for Greater Manchester and Bolton Council.
Curtis Moore are delighted to have been involved in this project which has a number of environmental features, including a roof which was designed to reduce energy consumption. Natural light floods into the building which reduces the need for artificial lights to be used, thanks to the ethylene tetrafluoroethylene paneling, which is a lightweight alternative to glass.
Bolton Council leader Cliff Morris said: ‘The interchange brings Bolton’s transport facilities firmly into the 21st century. It’s a magnificent new gateway to our town and an important part of our masterplan for the town centre.’
