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!!
