Vaughan Way improvement works

A new super crossing and associated highway improvements have recently been completed at Vaughan Way.

The super crossing and associated highway works on Vaughan Way and Great Central Street are part of a £50m redevelopment project. Great Central Station has been vacant for almost forty years but is being developed to come back into public use. 

Currently construction is still in progress but once complete the area between Great Central Street and Vaughan Way will be transformed, with the refurbishment of the old Great Central Station, the building of two new hotels, the creation of 35,000 sq. ft of new office space and a new public space. The new development is due for completion in November 2019.

This development will provide an essential element of connectivity between the city centre and the new Waterside developments, which includes housing and new commercial development.
