Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has been awarded a new contract for the refurbishment and upgrade of Rotherham Interchange for South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE).
The £12 million scheme will see improvements to the bus station in Rotherham town centre which include the installation of new lighting, glazing, seating, flooring, CCTV and Passenger Information Displays. The scheme will also involve repairs and upgrades to the car park including new cladding, surfacing, the provision of larger spaces for modern cars, electric vehicle charging points as well as improved pedestrian routes.
SYPTE’s Director of Customer Services Tim Taylor said:
“We’re delighted to be starting the Rotherham Interchange refurbishment. We’re looking forward to working with Interserve and we’re confident that together we’ll deliver an improved interchange, which will result in a better experience for our customers.”
The works are a key part of the Rotherham Town Centre Masterplan led by Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council. The Masterplan aims to regenerate the town centre area and providing sustainable transport is an important element of this.
Cllr Denise Lelliott, Rotherham Council’s Cabinet Member for Jobs and the Local Economy, said:
“It’s a really exciting time for Rotherham Town Centre, as we move forward with the Masterplan and look to regenerate the area. Sustainable transport will be an important part of these developments and I look forward to seeing work progress on the new interchange.”
John Gittins, Divisional Director at Interserve also commented:
“We are looking forward to building a long-term relationship with the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive as it continues to invest in its facilities to improve the passenger experience.
“At Interserve we are committed to investing in the communities in which we live and work; and we will look to maximise local supply chain involvement as well as creating new jobs for local people.”
