Work to replace bus shelters in Great Yarmouth are expected to take a month.

Parts of Market Gate Bus Station have been closed since June 6, with works expected to be completed by July 6.

The works are part of Norfolk County Council’s Local Growth Fund initiative to improve public transport in the town.

New shelters, railings, cycle hoops and lighting are being installed to improve waiting facilities for passengers.

Stand A has now been completed, but stands B and C will be closed until June 22, with buses picking up from temporary stop B on Regent Street.

Stand D will be closed until July 6 and buses will pick up at stand A.

Stand E will be closed until June 29 and buses will pick up at temporary stop C on Howard North Street, opposite the police station.

Stand F is not affected, and all stands will be open as usual over the weekends, including during the air show this weekend.
