UK: Work to Commence on New Dudley Interchange

Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) has announced that work is set to begin on the new Dudley Interchange from the beginning of 2024.

In the new year, Dudley Bus Station will be demolished to pave the way for a new 24 million GBP interchange that will offer seamless connections between bus and Metro services.

This project is being carried out alongside phase one of the Wednesbury to Brierley Hill Metro extension, delivered by Midland Metro Alliance.

Andy Street, Mayor of the West Midlands and WMCA Chair, said:

“This Interchange will vastly improve public transport connections for Dudley town centre visitors and businesses – giving local people the more modern, convenient and environmentally friendly bus and tram facilities they deserve.

“We have Metro tracks being laid for the first phase of the Metro extension in the town centre, have been working on cross-city bus route to improve reliability of services into Dudley and are developing and extending cycle lanes across the borough. This will help to offer local people safe and convenient alternatives to the car – reducing road traffic congestion.”

The new interchange is scheduled to open in 2025.

In the meantime, the demolition of the bus station, which was built in 1986, will result in the temporary relocation of bus stops to Tower Street and Ednam Road.

Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of Dudley Council, said:

“We are making great progress in Dudley town centre. With the upcoming demolition of the old bus station, people can see that the skyline of the town centre is changing once again and we are making good on our word to regenerate the town and create a place where people want to live, work or visit.

“The interchange will be a hub for transport in the town and will make it easier for people travelling by bus and tram. It will be a very proud moment for me when the new Interchange opens.”
