Brighouse Bus Station was officially opened
on Thursday 21 May and dedicated to former Calderdale District
Spokesman Councillor Geoffrey Wainwright, who died in February.
Metro Chairman, Councillor Chris
Greaves, paid tribute and said: "Geoff Wainwright championed public
transport across West Yorkshire and as a member of West Yorkshire
Integrated Transport Authority had been instrumental in seeing
through the plans for the bus station."
Unveiling a plaque, Mrs Joan
Wainwright said he would have been very proud. "He loved transport
and anything to do with buses was his life."
In line with Metro's modern, award-winning bus stations across West
Yorkshire, the new £2.38m facility will provide passengers
with more comfortable and safer enclosed waiting areas, new seating
and lighting, real-time electronic passenger information, 24-hour
CCTV surveillance, and additional footpaths and pedestrian
crossings leading to the town centre.
