New design for Cardiff bus station revealed

The design for Cardiffs new central bus and coach station has been revealed.

Due to cost around £800,000, the new facility will incorporate a sail-like feature and new bus bays, the BBC notes.

It reports that the demolition of the existing edifice – Terminus House – has already begun, with contractors removing the steel and glass from the glazed canopy roof.

The structure will be reduced to a pile of rubble by the end of July and then construction can begin.

Council leader Rodney Berman tells the news agency: "The new building which will replace Terminus House is visually very striking and the area will be hugely improved as a result."

He added that the start of the demolition process was another "milestone" in the transformation of the city centre.

Meanwhile, it was recently reported by the Birmingham Post that the glazed canopy roof of a London dance studio has provided the interior of the structure with a "naturally calm" atmosphere.
