To celebrate, Metro Chairman Cllr Ryk
Downes, and Calderdale District Spokesman Cllr Keith Watson handed
out pieces of birthday cake to passengers.
Brighouse Bus Station was officially
opened on Thursday 21 May 2009 and was dedicated to former
Calderdale District Spokesman Councillor Geoffrey Wainwright, who
died earlier that year.
"Brighouse Bus Station has been a
great success" said Metro Chairman Cllr Ryk Downes, "And following
feedback from passengers additional seating, a further four
timetable information displays and new Braille and priority waiting
signs will be installed next month."
Metro's Calderdale District Spokesman
Cllr Keith Watson said, "Brighouse bus station is a wholesale
improvement on the previous facility and I am delighted that Metro
has been able to provide local passengers with the high quality
facilities that people across West Yorkshire have come to expect
from Metro's bus stations."
In line with Metro's modern,
award-winning bus stations across West Yorkshire, the £2.38m
station has comfortable and safer enclosed waiting areas, seating
and lighting, real-time electronic passenger information, 24-hour
CCTV surveillance, and footpaths and pedestrian crossings leading
to the town centre.
Continuing the celebratory theme,
Brighouse Rail Station was 10 years old on Friday 28 May. Cllr
Downes was on hand to help staff mark the event with early-morning
passengers, and unveil a birthday poster by Simran Mattu from
Woodhouse Primary School.
