A new bus station… Am I dreaming?

Am I dreaming? I can’t quite believe it. I just wish my nan was alive to see it. Work really is to start next week on a new bus station for Hanley. If you’re not from Stoke-on-Trent then you simply won’t understand the significance of this development. For decades us Potters have been moaning about the horrible carbuncle which welcomes  (I use that term loosely) visitors to our city centre. It is no surprise that when the Daily Mirror ran an article a few years back claiming our city was the worst place to live in England and Wales they chose to run a picture of the bus station underpass. This dirty, great concrete monstrosity has been an embarrassment for years and the quicker it is pulled down the better. I may be speaking to soon but this could finally be the thing which kickstarts the regeneration of Hanley and holds up the top end of the Cultural Quarter. After all, first impressions do  count…
