While it is good to see improvements in and around Peterborough, the amount of disruption to daily life has been hugely annoying. Yes, knowing the local area will enjoy a better and brighter future is appealing, but it is sometimes hard to think of the long-term when your routine has changed.
The temporary bus station in Acland Street was a common feature in everyday life for locals, but now, things should be back to normal. Work on the 10-screen cinema is nearly finished, and the bus services at the Queensgate centre are back to normal.
Peterborough life becoming more settled
Mark Broadhead, Centre Director at Queensgate, spoke to the Peterborough Telegraph, saying; “I would like to thank everyone for their patience during this important part of the extension build and to see us enter the final stages leading up to the extension opening.”
Matt Gladstone is the chief executive at Peterborough City Council, and he also spoke to the Peterborough Telegraph, saying; “We are pleased to see the bus station return fully to Queensgate after an important temporary relocation to allow a multi-million cinema development to be built. I know I am not the only one looking forward to the opening of the cinema within easy walking distance for those in the city centre and nearby wards. Elsewhere in the city, our economy shows further signs of bouncing back following Covid-19 and we have a number of other exciting openings, including the new university, the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel and the Government Hub at Fletton Quays.”
There is hope 2022 will see a considerable amount of work and improvements in the local area, and Matt Gladstone agrees. He said; “2022 is a significant year for our city and its future development.”
These changes will help locals and businesses
Less disruption and more services will always be of benefit to locals. The shopping centre is making significant progress, and it will be at full strength before too long. Having buses back to normal will also be good, so there is a lot to be said for the recent progress made in Peterborough.
Darren Roe, Managing Director of bus operator Stagecoach East, said: “We are delighted that the bus station at Queensgate Shopping Centre in Peterborough will reopen from May 3, enabling our buses to resume their operations to and from this popular venue. We want to thank our passengers for their patience while this temporary measure was in place, and are now looking forward to resuming operations at the Queensgate bus lane now that work has completed.”
