Preston’s new bus station will now cost up to £25m – and taxpayers will pick up a third of the bill.

County Council officers now believe the cost of a new station on the corner of Church Street and Manchester Road – part of the city’s proposed Tithebarn regeneration – stands at between £23-25m.

Three years ago it was estimated the cost would be £15-17m until the design of the building was altered. Preston Council officers meanwhile said last year bringing the current facility up to scratch would cost just £4m.
