Knights Brown will begin work on a new look Maidstone Bus Station on Monday 22 March 2021.
We are working with Maidstone Borough Council in liaison with Kent County Council, Arriva, NuVenture and the owners of the Mall Shopping Centre to refurbish and improve the bus station.
The proposed new look will modernise the area and contribute to increasing the vitality and viability of Maidstone, the County Town of Kent, by improving its overall image as a modern and well cared for place with excellent public transport facilities.
We will have a dedicated public liaison officer on hand to address any issues arising from the construction.
A colourful mural is to be designed and created for the project, which is being funded by an Arts Council England grant. Youngsters from a local youth group will be involved and it is hoped the work will take place in June.
A consultation around the new look bus station took place last year from July until September and the top priority raised was ‘Improved Lighting’. Further improvements mentioned were ‘refurnishing floors in pedestrian areas’, ‘new bus bay signage with timetabling information’, ‘new benches and seating’ and ‘refurbishing the canopy along the Eastern side’, all of which will be incorporated in the refurbishments.
The proposed improvement work to the Bus Station reflects one of the Council’s Strategic Objectives – ‘A Thriving Place’.
