MARKET traders are demanding compensation after claiming the bungled Chester Bus Exchange refurbishment cost them thousands of pounds in lost custom.
Replacing the old brick bus stands with new shelters was supposed to take eight weeks but the delay-ridden project took almost twice that time.
During the work only limited buses ran from the Princess Street bus exchange near Chester Market, with many other services operating from Gorse Stacks near Tesco and Iceland.
Stallholders – some already struggling for survival – say trade fell almost 50 per cent and want compensation from Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWaC).
