Interchange on the road to Dudley
Dudley Council will update cabinet on the latest developments in plans for a £24m Interchange in Dudley town centre when they meet next week.
The Interchange is set to replace the current bus station and will connect Metro and bus journeys together for people visiting and travelling through the town.
Funded largely through the Transforming Cities Fund, the project is part of the local authority’s ambitious £1bn regeneration programme for the borough.
Dudley town centre is being transformed through exciting regeneration activity with the £450m Wednesbury to Brierley Hill Metro set to offer offer rail connection for the town centre.
Dudley is also the location of the brand new £18m Duncan Edwards Leisure Centre, which opened in January, and the £26m Black Country and Marches Institute of Technology, which opened to students in September last year.
Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of Dudley Council, said:
We have ambitious plans for our ever growing and prosperous borough. This growth needs to be supported by adequate transport networks, infrastructure and skills.
The Interchange is a key part of our vision, and this hub will act as a gateway to Dudley town centre, which is a hive of commercial, education and business investment.
