Birmingham Coach Station

posted in: Observations | 0

This august institution re-opened today after several years refurbishment and a temporary location in Coventry Street. Notice the change of name from Digbeth Coach Station. I did a survey this morning: check it out here. There are 16 bays tagged as bus-stops but the only renderer to pick them all out is our very own Christoph’s NOVAM. The red barrier around the bus roads is a work of art. I don’t know how long the copper cladding will remain nice and shiny. National Express sold the building two months ago for £16m in a sale-and-leaseback deal. It’s a couple of months late because the main contractor went bust. The taxi drivers I spoke to weren’t too impressed with only 4 spaces in their taxi rank.
