Context

Bolton’s newly configured transport hub supports a wider regeneration of the town centre, combining bus services, cycle storage and shop-mobility facilities with retail and office space.

Replacing Bolton's previous bus station, the interchange offers a modern, bright and spacious environment. A 100m long ‘sky-link’ footbridge provides an easy and safe transfer of passengers between the new bus station and the railway station.

Originally a traditional build, part of the scheme was converted to a precast concrete solution to bring efficiency savings to the programme.

Solution

To allow for differential movement between the traditional and precast parts, expansion joints were specified to run around the entire perimeter of the precast structure.

A range of CS Allway expansion joint covers were specified to meet the project’s functional and aesthetic requirements.

Installed in the concourse and bus waiting areas, gasketed GFT joint covers fit flush with the adjacent floor tile finishes, providing a smooth, pedestrian and wheel-friendly surface.

Joints between the suspended slab and the exterior wall of the concourse building were covered with flexible, EPDM rubber JDN strips, whilst double-gasketed GTP covers were fitted in all entrance doors leading to bus bays, providing a smooth pedestrian-friendly finish.

The ‘sky-link’ footbridge also required a joint cover solution. Durable CS metal joint covers (APF Series and AL-HD Series) were installed at interfaces with both buildings and between the steel spans of the bridge.
