This closure comes as part of a scheme to encourage people to use public transport and the proposed works will continue until next year.

Councillor Gerald Vernon-Jackson, cabinet member for traffic and transportation, said: “These schemes will make bus journeys faster, more convenient and reliable. I look forward to seeing more people choosing to travel by bus, bike and on foot once the works are completed.”
