We are responsible for the provision of bus infrastructure in North Lincolnshire and a programme of improvements has seen changes made to stops throughout the area.
One of these improvement measures is the raising of kerbing to make it easier for those with a disability or parents with pushchairs to get on and off. Other improvements include installing a pole, green sleeve, flag and case to bus stops.
Most stops are installed where it has been custom and practice for the bus to stop. Sometimes this isn’t always the safest place. When a stop is being upgraded, consultation takes place with local residents, the operator, the public transport department and the police.
If objections are received then alternatives will be looked at, however it may be that the site chosen is the only safe and convenient place.
