Refurbishment Is Just The Ticket For Drummer Street Bus Station

Cambridge's Drummer Street bus station is about to get an £80,000 makeover thanks to Cambridgeshire County Council.

Work starts on March 22 and will include cleaning the canopy and street furniture and complete repainting of the steel structure - the first time this type of work has been carried out since the bus station was built in the late 1980s.

Contractors will work overnight from Monday to Saturday after the last busses leave the station and all day on Sunday when the terminus will be closed to buses - bus stops will be moved to new locations nearby. The work is expected to take around four weeks.

The steelwork and glazing will be jet washed and the steel girders painted with a protective coating to bring them back to there original colour. Other fixtures and fittings will also be cleaned and re-painted as necessary.
