Project details

Chartrange were appointed by Willmott Dixon in October 2021 by Willmott Dixon to carry out remediation works to Stockport Bus Station. The site has been earmarked for development by Transport for Greater Manchester to serve as the all new Stockport Interchange.

The transport interchange will feature an innovative two-acre rooftop park which will improve leisure and recreation opportunities in the town centre and create more green space for everyone to enjoy. The park is expected to encourage wildlife and biodiversity as well as provide a safe environment for people to meet and relax.

Beneath the unique rooftop park, there will be a fully accessible, covered passenger concourse in the interchange with seated waiting areas, cycle storage facilities and 20 bus stands, providing capacity for future growth in bus services.

It will also provide new cycling and walking routes to the train station, Trans Pennine Trail and town centre.
