Refurbishment works set to start for Spalding bus station

A four week programme of refurbishment and resurfacing work at Spalding bus station is due to get underway next week, as part of around £100,000 of investment in the site by South Holland District Council.

The works, which are due to start on Monday (26 September), will include resurfacing across the station, as well as curbing replacement, deep cleaning of shelters and repairs to fencing around the site.

During the refurbishment, which will take place in two phases, the bus station will remain open and operational with services running as normal, although there will be some temporary relocations to allow work to take place.

During the first phase, taking place from Monday 26 September until approximately Friday 7 October, bus services will be relocated to near the existing taxi rank, with five designated bays operational whilst the original bus lanes are resurfaced.

For phase two, which should take place from around Monday 10 until Tuesday 18 October, bus services will return to their usual locations, with the car park and taxi area closed to the public whilst resurfacing takes place. During both phases cars and taxis will temporarily be asked to use the parking area at the other end of the site, near the King’s Road junction.

Councillor Rodney Grocock, South Holland District Council portfolio holder for assets and planning, said: “I am delighted that we are able to make this significant investment in the bus station, helping to make the site a simpler, more attractive and safer place for residents and visitors to use.

“It is vital that we do what we can to ensure that public transport in South Holland is both accessible and desirable for people to use, and that the station is a welcoming place to arrive in the town whether it’s for work, school, or to enjoy some of our fantastic local shops and businesses.”

Signage will be in place throughout the works to help visitors navigate the temporary changes.
