Brighton's bus stops to get even better

Brighton & Hove City Council is always looking to improve services and wants to make bus stops more accessible for people in wheelchairs and passengers with buggies. An exhibition giving details is being held on June 11th at Hove Town Hall from 12 noon to 2pm and 6pm to 8pm. Staff from the council's transport team will be on hand to answer questions and hear comments.

Many of the bus stops have been lined up for improvements in response to requests from residents. The detailed proposals were drawn up in response to feedback at a public meeting in April, when passengers and other interested parties were invited to give their views.

There are already 237 of these accessible bus stops in the city and they have proved popular with passengers. The latest package of improvements will be made during this year and next.

Accessible bus stops are one of a number of measures introduced by the city council to make it easy for people with disabilities to travel by bus. Innovative 'talking' bus stops - providing information for the blind and visually impaired - have made a real difference to these passengers.

The exhibition will give details of improvements to the following bus stops:

  • Braybon Avenue, Surrenden Road end (both sides of Braybon Avenue)
  • Seven Dials (north side of Buckingham Place)
  • ‘The Snipe’ (both sides of Carden Avenue)
  • Tavistock Down (west side of The Crestway)
  • Wilbury Villas (both sides of Cromwell Road)
  • Eaton Gardens (south side of Cromwell Road)
  • Montefiore Road (both sides of Davigdor Road)
  • Osmond Road (both sides of Davigdor Road)
  • Stonehurst Court (both sides of Down Terrace)
  • Seven Dials (south side of Goldsmid Road)
  • Texaco Garage (both sides of Hangleton Road)
  • Eldred Avenue/Copse Hill (east side of Eldred Avenue)
  • Coldean Lane (both sides of Lewes Road)
  • Kenilworth Close (north side of Norwich Drive)
