Salisbury station is to get a bus interchange costing £500,000 while £350,000 will be spent on pedestrian and cycle links in the city.
There will also be a new secure bike facility and a bike hire scheme will be started at the station.
I think the interchange may be on the north side of the railway line – perhaps where the Railway Club is now. I think there was a proposal to this effect some time ago – if I can find a link I’ll add it here.
Update:I found a couple of documents about this. A Department of Transport ‘Local Sustainable Transport Fund Application’ from Wiltshire Council outlines plans for:
• Secure cycle parking
• Walking and cycle route improvements to/from station
• Extension of the Amesbury to Salisbury bus service to the rail station
• Implementation of a bus-rail interchange at the northern entrance
• Traffic signal/bus priority improvements in the area around the station
• Cycle hire scheme
Salisbury Vision has a page on a ‘Station Interchange’. It says that:
Salisbury Vision is fully supportive of Wiltshire Council’s bid for Local Sustainable Transport Funding for Improving Wiltshire’s Rail Offer.
There isn’t much more detail although their proposal includes one to:
Create a new station square intended as an active urban space where people can meet and interact
