Better bus services

Just a short note to say I’m pleased to confirm improvements to two of the more popular bus stops in Blenheim – the two closest to the A127 on Bridgewater Drive.

The plan is to improve accessibility for everyone by replacing the verge at the stops with a hard standing and providing a raised bus boarder (higher kerb for easier access for wheelchair and pram users as well as those who find climbing up difficult). Work to commence shortly.

There are also plans for the London bound Kent Elms A127 stop (for the X30) again with a raised bus boarder, and also a shelter.

More ‘Better Bus Area’ projects to follow elsewhere in the ward soon.
