The City of Wolverhampton Council have announced plans to alleviate the backlog of traffic on Pipers Row caused by stationary coaches and create space for the extension of the Midland Metro by creating a new coach stop at Wolverhampton St George’s Metro stop.

The new coach facility will make use of the now redundant northern platform of the Midland Metro stop, bolstering plans for Wolverhampton’s new transport interchange. The City Council have been granted £500,000 towards the works by the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), with work starting in January 2016 and completion by April 2016. Coaches will access the site in a loop from the Ring Road/Bilston Street Island taking the short route via St George’s Parade and Garrick Street to the facility, easing traffic on Queen Street and Pipers Row.
