new bus station royal arcade plan

Dear Editor,
Crewe town centre’s Royal Arcade re-development is stalled before it has even begun.

We were promised that work would begin in January.

We are now told it will be nearly May before building work begins.

Will they then start building the much needed new shops?

Er No.

They will start by building the new bus station and multi-storey car park, which will be completed by the end of 2023.

Only then will the building of the shops begin……….and they won’t be finished until 2025/2026.

Of course the new bus station is needed as soon as possible.

It has been a awful eyesore, that needed replacing, for decades.

But why will it take nearly TWO YEARS to build a new bus station?

The idea that the multi storey car park will be built BEFORE the new shops is insane.

It is putting the parking cart before the retail horse.

Crewe is not short of car parking spaces, it is short of shops to attract shoppers into the town centre. And why is that?

Because there has been a steady stream of retailers re-locating to the Grand Junction Retail Park, where there are no car parking charges.

Yet again Crewe residents have been badly let down by their Labour run Borough and Town Councils.

‘Putting Crewe First’ are campaigning to have the new shops built before the multi storey car park and for the building of the new bus station to be speeded up.

Crewe town centre is dying on its feet.

Urgent action is needed to revive it………… before it is too late.

Yours faithfully,

Cllr Brian Silvester
Leader
Putting Crewe First
