VIDEO: Mansfield Bus Station work continues

WORK on Mansfield’s new £11.6m bus station project is reaching an important stage as the former Station Road hill is effectively wiped off the map.

Around 5,000 cubic metres of earth will be cut out of the ground to level the raised area ahead of the next phase of construction work.

Residents will have heard the sounds of drilling and digging over recent weeks as construction work continues at the site, and Chad took a look behind the boarding to see the progress being made.

Bosses say the project remains on track to replace Mansfield’s current run down and dated bus station with a gleaming new interchange in the early spring of 2013.
