As you rightly say - certainly a done deal.
The whole shambolic undesign of the Town Centre is not good.
Have the 'planners' (or the 'garden Town' designers from Bournemouth and elsewhere) thought about the poorly sighted (or Blind) people, who will have to cross the Bus lane that bisects the Town Centre? There is no 'feelable' barrier betwixt pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Buses turning out onto the (now totally shunned and disregarded) Broadway will be a nightmare.
