Phased stand changes at Huddersfield bus station during building overhaul

31 May 2018

Bus users who catch services from Huddersfield Bus Station are being advised to check if they are affected by stand changes which come into effect from Monday 4 June.

Kirklees Council is carrying out a £400,000 overhaul to the structure of the building, which houses a 450-space multi-storey car park over six levels with the Bus Station at ground level. The work, which involves treating the building’s external walls and metal strengthening bars to prevent corrosion, is expected to take 20 weeks.

Safety

To ensure the safety of customers, drivers and staff while the work takes place West Yorkshire Combined Authority, which manages Huddersfield’s Metro Bus Station, will be closing some bus stands and transferring services to alternatives. It is expected that six stands will be affected during each two- to three-week stage of the scheme.

From Monday 4 June to Friday 29 June, stands A, B, C, D, E and F will be closed, resulting in the following changes for bus services and coaches:

  • 81, 81A Clayton West, 82, 83, 83X Denby Dale will move to stand G
  • 85 Lepton, 85A Houses Hill, 231, 232 Wakefield will move to stand G/H
  • 262 Brighouse will move to stand G
  • 286, 287 Shepley X49 Halifax will move to High Street
  • 377, 378 Mount will move to stand H
  • 900, 901, 902 Rishworth/Hebden Bridge will moved to stand M
  • Kirklees College buses - will move from stand G to stand P
  • Town Centre buses - will move from stand H to stand V
  • Coaches (including Megabus and National Express) – will depart from nearby Railway Street (St George's Square), stop S1 (45015428)

Notices have been posted and reminders issued through the @MetroTravelNews Twitter feed and the West Yorkshire Metro page on Facebook.

The changes are also listed in the Bus Alerts on this website and will be updated for each phase of the work.

Refurbishment

Customer are also reminded that work is underway on a £120,000 refurbishment of the public toilets at Huddersfield Bus Station to bring them up to the modern standards that passengers already enjoy at Castleford and Leeds bus stations. This work will continue until the week commencing Monday 23 July. The accessible toilet will remain open while work is being carried out on the ladies and gents toilets, and notices have been posted telling passengers about alternative nearby facilities.
