Fleming Way Bus Boulevard scheme
Purpose of the Bus Boulevard scheme
The Fleming Way Bus Boulevard is important for a number of reasons.
It will improve connectivity between the train station and the town centre, creating a safer, easier to understand route through our town centre.
Ageing bus facility
The removal of the old bus station will enable us to deliver new homes and offices which will bring more people to live and work in the town centre.
The introduction of more greenery with the planting of trees and shrubs, will provide a green spine through the town centre.
Improving pedestrians and cycle movements
Cycle routes will be created through the town centre where none currently exist, making access easier.
Improving the bus user experience and convenience
All buses will operate from a single location rather than being split between the bus station and Fleming Way bus stops.
Town Centre regeneration
The Fleming Way Bus Boulevard will be developed to complement other town centre regeneration schemes, for example, the Kimmerfields development to the north of Fleming Way. As part of the Kimmerfields development, the existing bus station will be demolished after we have completed the Bus Boulevard project.
We are working closely with the team managing the construction of the new Zurich office building. This will ensure both projects deliver the best possible outcome for the benefit of Swindon’s residents.
