Located adjacent to The Wythenshawe Forum and the town centre Metrolink Stop, the new interchange creates a modern, fully integrated service for the public in the heart of Wythenshawe. Passengers can now easily and efficiently interchange between buses and the Metrolink tram service, and access local amenities such as the shopping facilities at Etrop Court.
A key feature of the design is the sweeping curved roof structure that runs north to south. The roof peaks at the north and south-east points to define the passenger entrances and draw people into the building and dips to a low point in the centre of the building to highlight the concourse facilities. The sweeping form ensures the interchange is easy to navigate and by minimising roof overhangs AHR were able to maximize the natural light which aids clear and safe pedestrian and vehicular circulation around the site.
