Preston Bus Garage has its merits. It has a very clear easy to understand layout. It is easy to obtain information about buses, which is often not true of most bus stations. It main problems are poor location some distance from Preston rail station, badly designed pedestrian subway links to the centre of Preston and inadequate maintenance. The car parking over the bus station does have architectural merit. Unlike most concrete structures of the era it has a certain elegance and is one of the better examples of the Brutalist architecture movement's products.
The building has become a major problem for Preston. Should it be redeveloped or refurbished?
There is no easy answer. If you are interested in architecture, urban planning or transport planning you should see for yourself.
