Gainsborough Bus Station given new lease of life

Gainsborough Bus Station has recently been refurbished to provide an enhanced gateway to the town centre.

New shelters, street furniture and CCTV have been installed to improve the experience for passengers, alongside an updated layout to create uniformity across the station and re-surfacing where required.

Leader of West Lindsey District Council and Gainsborough ward member, Cllr Trevor Young, said: “The improvement works to Gainsborough Bus station mean it is now a more user-friendly environment with increased shelter provision for users. We hope you enjoy the new modern look as we know how important our bus station is to many of our residents.”

The previous bus shelters have been re-purposed to local Parish Councils throughout the West Lindsey district.

Matt Cranwell, Managing Director for Stagecoach East Midlands, said: “We’re pleased to witness the transformation of Gainsborough Bus Station by West Lindsey District Council. The recent enhancements include more modern fixtures and bus shelters, as well as a thorough deep clean, to create a more positive customer experience.

“Thank you to our passengers for their patience during the two-week renovation period, during which a temporary bus station was in operation. We hope you will enjoy the improvements made to the bus station, and benefit from the enhanced travel experience provided.”

Director of Planning Regeneration and Communities at West Lindsey District Council, Sally Grindrod-Smith, said: “Delivering a set of upgrades to the bus station is one part of the £18million investment into Gainsborough town centre. Together with improvements to signage across the town and increased CCTV, we continue the transformation to make Gainsborough a safe, friendly, and welcoming place to spend time.”
