• Re‐provision of Middleton Bus Station, Middleton

The Transportation Sector

On behalf of Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive (G.M.P.T.E.), Atkinson Peck has provided Civil and Structural Engineering Services for Bus Stations in both Wigan and Middleton Town Centre’s. In both cases Atkinson Peck also acted as CDM Coordinator.

In the case of the Wigan Bus Station the brief was for the construction of two elegant covered walkways to link between the bus station and nearby shopping centre. Work was phased in such a way as to minimize impact on bus station operation and pedestrian usage.

The bus station located in Middleton Town Centre was commissioned by GMPTE to be a new “category 1” station. The station included improvements to access/egress, safer pedestrian movement and remodelling of the site layout to make better use of available space. The scheme was subsequently awarded the North West Regional Structural Award for small project in 2006.

We feel confident that the experienced gained in these projects, leaves the company well placed to provide a similar quality service for future developments of this nature.
