A new Stevenage Bus Interchange on Lytton Way with modern facilities and landscaped cycle and walking routes connect the railway station, coach stands and the Town Centre.


The new Stevenage Bus Interchange on Lytton Way was opened in summer 2022 to replace the bus station on Danestrete.

Designed by Stephen George + Partners (SGP) and built by local contractors Willmott Dixon, the Bus Interchange was recently awarded ‘Project of the Year’ at the Hertfordshire & Bedfordshire Constructing Excellence Club Awards 2022. The awards highlight design and innovation in construction.

The public environment was improved with new granite planters, paving and additional seating areas, improving the walkway from the town centre to the Bus Interchange. This includes seating and newly landscaped areas with planted trees and wildflower meadow areas with bulbs to add colour and pollination benefits, but also performing a vital role as part of a sustainable drainage strategy.

The project has also delivered new coach stands along Lytton Way – a new facility including shelter, seating and live information boards. The new landscaped cycle and walking routes connect the railway station, coach stands and the new Interchange to the Town Centre to encourage sustainable transport.
