Following a grant of £500,000 in October last year from the Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) for the development of a new coach facility in Wolverhampton city centre, work is now underway on the Wolverhampton Coach Link which will be sited on Bilston Street opposite Bilston Street Police Station. The facility will make use of the now redundant north side of the St George’s Midland Metro stop – something that will be welcome news to citizens who use Pipers Row and often find themselves stuck in traffic congestion due to parked coaches and passing buses.Wolverhampton Coach Link work in Bilston Street has now begun
Space will now be opened up for Wolverhampton’s extension of the Midland Metro, where a new stop is planned outside the bus station. Coach services will approach the Wolverhampton Coach Link from the Ring Road / Bilston Street Island, making their way via St George’s Parade and Garrick Street to the facility – avoiding the need to use the often busy Market Street, Queen Street and Pipers Row.3-D graphic of what the new Bilston Street coach facility will look like (City of Wolverhampton Council)
Work is also soon to start on doubling the capacity of the Wolverhampton Railway Station car park.
