New Bus Shelter Programme Starts

Cllr Tim Ward
A City Council funded programme to upgrade bus shelter facilities across the city started last week. The £267,000 project aims to replace the ageing shelter stock and provide twelve brand new shelter locations that were prioritised by the four City Council Area Committees.

Councillor Tim Ward, Executive Councillor for Planning and Climate Change said: "This project will deliver improved facilities for those using public transport, particularly for people who rely heavily on the services they provide, at the same time hopefully attracting others to take up this sustainable form of transport."

The work is due to be complete by December 2013.
