The initiative will see the installation of granite flagging, raised planters, lighting columns, landscaping and street furniture on the west side of the grade II listed building.

The first phase of works was completed in 2018 which focussed on improving the eastern apron of the station and adding a new coach station.

Robert Ashcroft, operations manager of contractor ENGIE, said: “Preston Bus Station continues to go from strength-to-strength with the first phase of this development successfully completed last year, with very positive feedback.
