Tony Clarke concludes his piece by demanding financial clarity:-
It's probably too late to do anything practical; but before smashing the old bus station to bits, at least examine some alternatives.
What would residents of Northampton like from their town centre bus "interchange"?
1 All buses together so that folk could, erm, interchange.
2 Everything under cover; no waiting in the rain ...
... with plenty of seats and space to queue.
3 Duty staff available for enquiries, supervision and security.
11 Even (dream on, dream on) an attractive roof garden for gastro-pub or bistro ...
1. Don't extend the Grosvenor Centre
3. Refurbish the old bus station; don't demolish it.
Crackpot (?) fbb's plan appears to be; but ...
... we can dream can't we?
