West Bromwich bus station
Anamorphic Portico by Steve Field
|Location||Ringway, West Bromwich, England
|Operated by||Network West Midlands|
|Connections||West Bromwich Central tram stop (adjacent)|
It is managed by Network West Midlands. Local bus services operated by various bus companies serve the bus station which has 24 departure stands. The West Bromwich Central stop on the Midland Metro tram line is across the road from the bus station.
It opened in the spring of 2002 to replace the previous station, which had served the town for some 30 years, at a nearby location which was later developed as The Public arts centre.
The station features a mosaic artwork, Anamorphic Portico, by local sculptor Steve Field, which makes use of anamorphic columns and includes images loosely derived from David Christie Murray's book A Capful o’ Nails. An old Bundy clock is also displayed on the concourse.
