Part of Harlow’s bus station is set to be bulldozed this month as part of a multi-million pound.

Harlow Council has contracted with Morgan Sindall to begin preparatory demolition for the extensive regeneration of Harlow Bus Station.

The initiative aims to transform the site into a "sustainable Transport Hub" alongside the redevelopment of Terminus Street, a project fuelled by Harlow’s £23.7m Towns Fund programme backed by the Government.

Michael Hardware, councillor responsible for economic development, said: "We are now moving quickly into the delivery phase of rebuilding our town centre with another major regeneration project underway in the coming weeks.

"The transformation of the bus station and Terminus Street will make a huge difference to this side of the town centre and will complement improvements to Broad Walk and our plans for Market Square.

"This is all about putting the heart back into Harlow’s town centre."

The current bus station is anticipated to morph into a vibrant and inviting space, aiming to facilitate public transport for residents, visitors, and employees.

Moreover, it will serve as a connection to the Harlow and Gilston Garden Town sustainable transport corridor.

Key milestones have been reached with Morgan Sindall's involvement, signified by plans to demolish the existing waiting room, bus station toilets, and the Terminus House bridge come April.

Disruptions are expected starting Friday, April 5, including the closure of station toilets and the Terminus House bridge.

From this date, access to Terminus House, Mecca bingo, and the multi-storey car park will be redesigned to be from the northern and southern areas of Terminus Street.

The adjustments stem from ceasing central access through the bus interchange.

Despite the closing down of Changing Places toilet, alternate suitable facilities will be available in the Harvey Centre.

Marking the beginning of an estimated 18-month construction period, more specifics regarding construction schedules and interim bus station arrangements will be revealed soon.
