After the success of our recent Kalzip project at Whythenshawe Interchange, we are delighted to be working alongside Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) again on the new £48 million Bolton Interchange.
The development involves a brand new bus and rail interchange, which will also include a Cycle Hub and high quality office space. This will make it easier for local people to use public transport by bringing bus, cycle and rail services closer together.
The new interchange will offer enhanced accessibility with a modern concourse and passenger facilities including a retail outlet, cycle hub, shop mobility, café and modern public toilets including adult and baby changing facilities. It will also make use of innovative sustainable energy initiatives, including rainwater recycling to flush the toilets, solar panels, air source heat pumps and low-energy LED lighting.
The main contractor, Kier, has recently commenced construction of the Interchange which is scheduled to be operational in summer 2016. Curtis Moore will be installing 3300m2 of Kingspan Topdek Roofing Panels, 600m2 of Bauder single ply & Green roof system, 1000m2 of PPC Plank soffit System and 200m2 of Kingspan MR cladding panels.
The development will deliver transformational change to a key town centre gateway, acting as a catalyst for regenerating the wider town centre area, improve linkages and connectivity for bus and rail commuters.
In providing the bespoke, modern, transport hub and new high quality office development set within a high quality public realm environment TfGM aim to ease commenting between cities and make the surrounding area more attractive for new business and prospective employers.
