Opening date for Derby's new bus station

Bus station under construction
Buses have had to use stops on the street during construction

Derby's new bus station will be open for business at the end of March, a council has confirmed.

The previous station was demolished in 2006, but its replacement has been hit by delays to the Riverlights city redevelopment project.

Derby City Council transport chief Lucy Care said the station would open on 28 March, although an official ceremony has yet to be finalised.

Shops built within the new building are not expected to be open immediately.

The city council said the station will be open from 0530 GMT until midnight Monday to Saturday and 0900 until 2300 GMT on Sundays.

The bus station project is part of the Riverlights redevelopment which has been delayed by problems such as planning disputes and the recession.

Buses have been using stops on the street while the new station was under construction.
