Truro Bus Station undergoes 10-week refurb

Commuters will need to take the bus from different spots as Truro Bus Station undergoes a massive refurb.

The station will be closed from Monday for 10 weeks, while it is given a 'spring clean'.

Bosses say the work will include resurfacing the road around the station and along Green Street.

They will also be replacing damaged railings, cleaning the building structure and repainting the building's metal work, as well as installing more real time passenger information signs.

The works form part of a wider £150m Council-led programme of public transport improvements using Growth Deal funding from the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership.

Councillor Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council Cabinet Member for Transport, said: "We have a devolved budget which we are using to shape transport services more effectively to meet the needs of our residents.

"Part of this is about improving the information available to passengers at bus stops and the facilities at our busier stations."

During the closure, buses will arrive and depart from various locations around the city centre:

First Buses:

  • Services T1, T2, 85 & 87: Arrive at Boscawen Street and depart from Victoria Square
  • Services 46, 47 & T3: Arrive at Boscawen Street and depart from Lemon Quay
