Cuddy wins bus contract
By Lindsay Gale08 May 2008
Cuddy Group is shortly to start work to demolish Cardiff’s main bus terminal in a contract worth £450,000 (US$890,000). The eight month contract was awarded to the Neath, Wales, based demolition contractor by Cardiff City Council, following on from other successful demolition work it has carried out in the city as part of a massive four-year redevelopment to help Cardiff reach its potential as a world class ‘quality of life’ capital city.
In a statement, Cuddy contract manager Peter Smith said: “Demolition of the bus terminus marks the start of the final phase of the redevelopment in the area around and including the Millennium stadium. It involves clearing the three storey terminus building and removing asbestos, securing the site and then commencing the actual demolition work in June.” He went on: “Meticulous planning is crucial during the work on the main building because we have an extremely restricted area to work in. We have sitting tenants in the form of a national coach operator and a tobacconist, and we have to ensure the bus station is able to continue functioning throughout the entire project.”
