Passengers travelling into King’s Lynn will have their buses temporarily relocated while the bus station is refurbished.

From Monday March 9 all departures and arrivals for southbound bus services to and from King’s Lynn will be relocated from the bus station to Portland Street while work is carried out.

Signs will be displayed at key points around the area and bus operators will have posters on board their vehicles.

The work is part of the £1.6m King’s Lynn Transport Interchange project, which is designed to improve the bus station area and the links between the bus station and railway station.

The project has been funded by £500,000 each from Tesco and Sainsbury under a Section 106 agreement, with the remainder coming from the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk and Norfolk County Council.

The next phase of work includes the installation of a new canopy to provide more shelter from the elements.

Buses affected are Norfolk Green No 37 Southery, 38 Middleton, 39 Marham, 46 Wisbech/March, 55 The Walpoles, 505 Spalding, Hardwick 6, First Group X1 Peterborough/Norwich/Great Yarmouth, Konectbus Service 1 Swaffham & Dereham.

All other bus and coach services will remain at the bus station departing from bays 5, 6,7 & 8.

Because Portland Street is a few metres further than the bus station, the council is advising passengers to allow extra time to catch their bus.
