Some more news here on the commissioning of the Betty Campbell statue, including an artists impression of the area in front of the new HMRC building that I don't recall having seen before. It shows a plaza with a sort of low rise (1 or 2 storey?) glass box at the western end of it. Perhaps this might be a restaurant or cafe? It's very much an indicative sketch though.

I believe that the glass box will be the cycle parking/hub that was going to be next to the bus station. However with plans changing I'm not sure if that is still the case.

There's an announcement tomorrow, so I hear. I may well be wrong.

Well that's a pretty basic website!! but I rather like it - Cardiff bus colours and the message is pretty direct!! :roll: Let's hope there is an announcement tomorrow :?: - some news about this rather important issue would be very welcome and somewhat overdue! I don't doubt that plenty is going on behind the scenes but that doesn't change the fact that our capital city is at least 2 years away from the basic requirement of a central bus station. And news on why it isn't even under construction is frustrating. I feel that people are reasonably happy to put up with delay of a service they expect if they can at least see that that service is under construction and therefore going to be delivered. Oh! to see full-on movement in the direction of this long promised transport interchange being delivered!!

Was this what was holding up the new bus station?

In short, yes. This announcement was due a few weeks back but there were obviously a few last minute snags. I have no idea what those snags were.

Bit worrying that everyone in the article is referring to the bus station as the final part of central square. What about the plot next to HMRC?

So pretty obviously plenty was always going on behind the scenes. But this certainly seems to be very positive news - perhaps now the dosh is sorted an element of urgency could be introduced!! Maybe when walesonline get up to speed on this story (yes folks this forum is the place for the breaking news!!) some questions regarding timescales will be asked ;)
