£1.5m bus terminal set to open with new Coventry rail station

A new bus terminal has been built opposite Coventry station.

It is part of the station extension works which saw a new railway station completed last year (2021).

The interchange, which cost £1.5million, is in an unused car park at Central Six, to the left of the entrance to the shopping park.

It hasn’t opened yet and won’t be until the £82million resort does – the opening, which was due to take place in the new year, has been delayed due to a leak.

This new terminus replaces the current Eaton Road terminus with the station entrance and when open there will be direct access from the bus terminus to the station via an underpass.

A spokesperson for Coventry City Council said the transport interchange had been “provided as part of the Coventry Station Master Plan” and its cost had been funded by the West Midlands Combined Authority and the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership (CWLEP) Growth Deal.

“There will be four bus stops as well as two track replacement bays,” the spokesperson added. “The transport interchange replaces the existing bus stop area on Eaton Road.

“It will open when the new station and car park extension opens and it will provide direct access to and from the station via the new underpass.

“The carriage interchange was delivered as part of the wider Coventry station master plan and cost around £1.5million funded by the West Midlands Combined Authority and the CWLEP Growth Deal.

“The new interchange has four stops for local buses as well as two rail replacement bays.”
