SPT reopen Partick bus station following makeover

Glasgow transport operator SPT is to reopen Partick bus station for the first time in 11 months on 2 September following extensive remodelling work.

Integrating with the adjacent rail and subway station the new look interchange will also plug into cycle and footpath networks, with the number of bus stances increased by 20% to accommodate increased passenger numbers.

Lead design consultant Austin-Smith:Lord has overseen the design of these stances, which have a cantilevered roof form and curved glass ends, complete with integrated lighting, seating, CCTV and customer information displays.

Austin-Smith:Lord’s project director Andrew McCafferty commented: “We have enjoyed working closely with SPT and their stakeholders to develop a design solution that will improve the bus passenger experience, promote the ‘seamless journey’ and connectivity with the existing subway/rail interchange and enhance the quality of environment for those who live and work within the area.”

Public realm enhancements include separation of buses from other vehicles and provision of new granite paving, seating, trees and lighting.

It just doesn't work for me. It's cold and sterile despite the valiant attempts to add a few trees.

Why can provincial cities in France and Spain manage nice interchanges and we end up with this over-engineered guff?

Also, what are they thinking with that curved glass? Thats going to cost a bomb to replace every couple of weeks.
