Guildford bus stop improvement works

Scheme overview:

These bus stop improvements are being carried out as part of the major Guildford Quality Bus Corridors project. Information regarding all the plans for this project can be found on our Guildford major transport schemes page.

Bus stops across the town will be upgraded with improved waiting areas, including new bus shelters. Many more bus stops will be made accessible with raised kerbs that remove the step down from the bus, and there will be more room for the bus to pull in and line up with the pavement edge - ideal for those using a mobility aid, or travelling with small children or luggage. Other improvements might include footway widening and resurfacing, street furniture decluttering and installation of electric power (e.g. for lighting and live departure screens).
