CHELMSLEY Wood's brand new bus interchange will be opening for use within two weeks.
The modernised bus stops will feature better seats, lighting and high quality shelters, along with improved bus information on Chelmsley Circle.
Work on the £40 million regeneration of Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre has been making good progress according to the Centre owners and partners, Fordgate Midlands Properties Ltd, Solihull Council, Wates Construction and Advantage West Midlands.
Already completed are the removal of two bridge links and relocation of the Banbury Club and Citizens Advice Bureau.
And now the bus interchange will be officially up and running on Monday October 13.
Barrie Jones, centre manager of Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre said: "We are working really hard to improve the Shopping Centre for the people of Chelmsley Wood and the surrounding are. We are delighted to announce that the new bus inter-change is now open. We think this will provide shoppers with easier and better access to and from the Centre."
Cabinet member for transport, highways and infrastructure, Councillor Ted Richards added: "This is an exciting time in the redevelopment of the town centre as this latest phase marks an important milestone in providing residents with improved facilities in Chelmsley Wood.
"The new bus interchange will make it much easier for people to come and see what the Centre has to offer, which by the middle of 2010 will include a new Asda store, library, Solihull Connect and refurbished shopping malls."
