Blackwood has an exciting new bus interchange, with the provision of a new, high quality facility on the site of the old bus station, next to the town's Market Square.
Although the former bus station was ideally located in the centre of the town, it suffered from poor design and that promoted anti-social behaviour.
The aim is to make this part of Blackwood more attractive to potential retailers and service sector employers alike. The new facility will incorporates a ground-floor level café and waiting room and will provide a safe secure area for passengers by maximising natural light and providing high-quality lighting and CCTV systems. Passengers will also benefit from comprehensive information displays and, for the first time, a formal taxi rank.
The bus station improvements have been made possible thanks to a funding bid to the Assembly Government, secured by the council and Sewta.
