Improvement works at Rhyl bus station started just after Christmas/New Year 2008. The entire scheme was expected to take up to 9 months and the cost was said to be £3 million pounds - most of which came from Welsh Assembly Government. Whether the job shall be finished on time and within budget is hard to predict.

Meanwhile the scene is looking gradually less like a building site and more like a bus station. Blog reader Han in the Netherlands has shown much interest in progress and was kind enough to let me know that our mutual bus company Arriva was fined for using unsafe buses in the city of Den Bosch. Thank you for that information, Han - as a frequent user of buses I’ll always be thinking of it.

: There has been no official announcement that the new bus station is open even though the work appeared to be finished some time ago. The end result disappoints bearing in mind the cost. Oh well, now we can get back to grumbling about how unfit for purpose the bus station is.
