Metal Stud Ceiling
Council bosses left baffled by a problem with the roof of Norwich’s £5m bus station which left its main building water damaged have warned bus users they could face even more disruption before it is fixed.
The bus station only opened seven years ago and was hailed as a state-of-the-art landmark for the city, but the ticket office, toilets and cafe there have been shut for more than a month because of a leak in the futuristic-looking canopy roof.
Officers at Norfolk County Council admitted they will not know what has gone wrong with the structure until they dismantle the suspended ceiling.
Attempts to do that have been scuppered a number of times because of rain, but with a better forecast for tomorrow, the intention is to shut the station to carry out that work and make a short-term fix.
But council bosses said, while that ought to mean the ticket office, cafe and toilets can re-open on Monday, a more permanent repair could lead to more closures in the future.
