Rochdale’s £11.5m transport interchange opens its doors to the public later. Transport for Greater Manchester say it will provide enhanced levels of facilities and improved safety and security for bus passengers and will link directly with the new Metrolink extension.
I am delighted that we have completed this innovative and hugely significant project that will provide a fantastic, modern gateway for the town centre and a European first, thanks to its hydropower plant.
The interchange will provide better links between rail and bus services as well as improved waiting areas, passenger facilities, accessibility, information, safety and security.
The facility is also going to play a crucial part in making Rochdale an exciting destination for residents, shoppers and businesses alike.”
