Essential Bus Station Health & Safety Works

Watson Batty Architects carried out essential health and safety works at some of West Yorkshire Combined Authorities (Metro) bus stations.

Having worked closely with our long term client Metro, proposals were developed following substantial consultation with internal consultees, to provide significant physical health and safety works at Leeds, Bradford Interchange, Halifax and Dewsbury bus stations to enhance the safety environment for both passengers and vehicle movements. 

The following passenger and pedestrian benefits have been provided as part of the project scope:
