North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, ENGIE, are starting works to improve a number of bus stops across the borough from Monday 12 August.
Working with local operators, through the North East Lincolnshire Bus Quality Partnership, the raised kerb improvements aim to improve accessibility to the bus network and encourage more people to use buses.
Many modern buses can now lower their step height at bus stops and raised kerbs can give almost level boarding for passengers and importantly, for pushchairs and wheelchairs.
The improvements will take place in the following locations:
- Eight bus stops on Cleethorpe Road between Riby Square and Park Street
- Two bus stops on Kingsway between Brighton Street and Queen’s Parade
While works take place at each location, the bus stop will be suspended and a temporary bus stop will be provided nearby for passengers.
Works will start on Cleethorpe Road from Monday 12 August, and then move on to Kingsway when complete. The works will be completed on a rolling programme taking nine weeks in total to complete.
North East Lincolnshire Council and ENGIE would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by the works.
