A NEW shop, cycle hub and “acoustic trees” are planned for the ground floor of Bradford Interchange as part of wider works to the station.

Work to demolish the former NCP car park on Hall Ings to create a new entranceway to the Interchange began earlier this year.

Although much of the work will involve the approach to the station, more detail have now been revealed of what changes will be made to the actual station itself.

West Yorkshire Combined Authority is asking the public what they would like to see in the station once the improvements are made.

The consultation reveals that plans so far include a new shop at the entrance to the station in the former travel centre – next to the existing Java Joe and WH Smith.

There will also be a cycle hub, with parking for 75 cycles and tools on hand for bike maintenance.

A new changing places toilet will be installed, and there will be more ground floor seating and “acoustic trees” to “help absorb background noise.”
