Central station a lot friendlier; VIEWPOINTS.

I WOULD like to reply to some comments made by Alan Hapgood about the bus box (Viewpoints, March 22).

The actual size of this city does not lend itself to a bus box system and a central bus station is a lot more friendly to the travelling public.

To say the majority of bus passengers who travel into the city don't go to the station in nonsense. Let's say you are a visitor to the city, you get off the train to get a bus, to wherever you want to go, but the bus you need doesn't leave from the station.

So why should a visitor to Cardiff have to walk to, say, the castle to get a bus. That is daft.

And why do you think it's OK to close off the city centre just for a rugby game? When St Mary Street was open to traffic, closing off Westgate Street was OK, but as St Mary Street is now pedestrianised and the only way to get to the other side of the city is down Westgate Street, to shut it when there is a game on can't be right.

I do realise there are a lot who think the stadium is in a good place, but when there is a game on it causes a lot of disruption to the city.

So the moral to this story is to REBUILD THE BUS STATION.
