WORKMEN will graft through the night to knock down one last building and make way for the new Bolton Interchange.

Over the last few weeks cranes and diggers have been on site at the junction of Newport Street and Great Moor Street demolishing the old shop units.

The final building to go, formerly The Cash Store, a payday loans shop, will start to be knocked down between 11pm and 5am tonight.

A spokesman from Transport for Greater Manchester, the organisation behind the £48 million project, said they were carrying out the work at night to minimise disruption to motorists and pedestrians.

He added: “It is a tall building and we need to use the road to get the plant hire equipment on site effectively.

“If done overnight there is generally less disruption for Bolton residents.”

The interchange is planned as a new, modern and fully accessible bus station, which will be linked to the train station by an enclosed pedestrian footbridge.
