New White City Bus Station Opens This Weekend
|On Saturday 29 November 2008, Transport for London (Tfl) will open the brand new White City bus station.
The bus station, constructed by Westfield, has been built around the historic Grade II listed red brick Dimco buildings, which date from 1898.
During the construction of the station, the buildings' facades and interiors were fully restored. A stand for twelve buses has been provided in one of the buildings.
The bus station provides a convenient interchange between buses and the new Wood Lane (Hammersmith & City line) station, and brings several extra bus routes within walking distance for residents of the White City Estate and the BBC Television Centre.
Shoppers heading to and from Westfield will also benefit, as White City bus station is immediately next to the north western entrance to the shopping centre.

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, said: "Despite a collective tightening of the nation's wallets, the Capital's buses are defying the economic downturn as passenger numbers continue to rise.
"This superb new bus station will be a real boost for local people and for shoppers going to Westfield.
"The marvellous use of the historic Dimco buildings ties the old with the new and makes this a building that White City can really be proud of."
