Partick Interchange bus station to be redeveloped
Austin-Smith:Lord has filed a formal planning application to refurbish a bus station at Partick Interchange through the addition of new stances, shelters and public realm on behalf of Glasgow City Council.

Outlining their plans the architects wrote: “The improvements consist of providing enclosed passenger waiting areas and improvements to the bus apron to ensure segregation of bus movement from other vehicles. The bus apron has been reconfigured to provide six bus stances. Improvements will also be made to lighting, signage and CCTV coverage. The public realm will also be improved to provide new paving, seating and tree planting.”

The work follows improvements made to Partick Station itself designed to improve interconnectivity between rail, subway and buses.

A number of improvements have been made to the Partick area since the opening of the Transport Museum

Not brilliant (though the renders aren't hugely descriptive) but certainly an improvement on what's currently there. Glad they will be resurfacing the wider public realm too...it's pretty dire at the moment.

This area is crying out for redevelopment but this is basically just replacing some bus shelters. A sea of Tarmac and a bigbox morissons is such a waste of one of the most accessible locations in Scotland

Overall agreed with Hum but Charlie makes a brilliant point that we should be doing more with locations like that. Something creative, anything but the usual, uninspired, pseudo-industrial estate option.

I wonder if they can relocate some of the car park space elsewhere and free up more area for public realm. Or it is too expensive for maintenance?
