Bradford Interchange / Bradford Exchange


Bradford Exchange, Bradford, England

The Bradford Interchange (originally called Bradford Exchange) is a major hub of activity for traffic of travelers, commuters, pedestrians, and passengers coming to Yorkshire. It is a combined coach, bus, and railway station located in Bradford, England. Originally the Bradford Exchange as a train station, it was completely rebuilt on the same site in 1880 with 10 bay platforms and two arched roofs with wrought iron, glass, timber, slate, and plain stone wall construct in a classic corinthian style. Originally designed as a show piece for European design (its current design), it was created in 1962 and opened in 1971. he station was rebuilt again in 1973 to a smaller size. The Bradford Crown court, Magistrates’ and Coroner’s Courts took over the un-used space. In 1977 a bus station was built alongside the train station and re-named to the Bradford Interchange linking together bus and train traffic. By 1999 another rebuilding of the bus station took place with a grand opening in 2001. On its lower level is a main entrance where taxi services, passenger pickup, and a car park is located. Upstairs is the train and bus platforms. Within the central concourse downstairs are ticket booths, information, a news agent, a cafe, fast food outlet, and a few shops.

Melbourne Central Station

Melbourne City Center/Central Station
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

http://www.metlinkmelbourne.com.au/stop/view/19842.

In the heart of Melbourne is the underground railway station known as “Melbourne Central”. It is one of Melbourne’s five stations (three of which are underground) on the City Loop that encircles the central business district. Located under La Trobe Street, between Swanston and Elizabeth Streets, on the CBD’s northern edge and is named after the shopping centre it is located underneath. While seemingly the most popular station, it is not the city’s main station, as that role is filled by the “Flinders Street Station”. However Melbourne City Central Station is the second busiest railway station in Melbourne with over 47,000 passengers a day. The station was built using cover and cut construction in 1973 with completion accomplised in 1978. Because of its art, central location, and design, it was opened as a Museum in January 1981. By 1995 the Museum was relocated behind the Royal Exhibition building in the Carlton Gardens. The station was then renamed in 1997 after the Melbourne Central Shopping Centre.

Rating : 5 stars out of 5. Review by Tom Baurley.
