Middlesbrough Bus Station has reopened after a £1.5m revamp.

It was closed four weeks ago for a major overhaul, which included concourse reconstruction and an automatic door system.

A two-day training and commissioning period was carried out at the start of the week to ensure the new systems were operating correctly.

Middlesbrough councillor Nicky Walker said: "It looks excellent... I think it is money well spent."

The project is part of the Tees Valley Bus Network Improvement Scheme, which will see £57m spent on improvements across the area.

When fully operational, the bus station is used by an average of 35,000 passengers every weekday.
