Have a say on £10m plan for bus station
People have five days left to have their say on plans for a £10.5 million overhaul of one of Leicester's main bus stations.
Last month, city mayor Sir Peter Soulsby outlined the multi-million pound scheme to refurbish and expand the 1994-built Haymarket bus terminal.
He said the set-up in Charles Street was both chaotic and congested and the new design would improve the area for passengers and bus operators.
About 20,000 people use the station every day.

The council said the development, which would include an extra 11 stands, would see the number of buses every hour increase from 40 to 60 in the day.
The council has agreed terms to buy several shops at the corner of Charles Street and Belgrave Gate which it intends to demolish.
The roundabout will be replaced with a new road layout. The project is set to be funded mainly by the sale of city council-owned land on the edge of Leicester for development.
The project is a rethink of a previous plan that failed to attract a £5 million Government grant last year.
If the scheme gets planning permission, preliminary work could begin in the summer and take two years to complete.
The public consultation on the plans runs until Friday.
