Probus bus shelter update
Revised model of shelter agreed
After lengthy consideration of all responses received to the consultation on the proposed bus shelter in The Square, it has been decided to implement the scheme in an amended form.
Based on the responses received, it is clear that a bus shelter is needed for bus users. The location proposed under the second consultation is also suitable because The Square is the ‘hub’ of Probus. The position of the bus stop itself is preferred by the main bus operator and has been checked by a Road Safety Officer to confirm that it is safe.
It was clear from the consultation responses that the style of the proposed ‘eco’ bus shelter was not popular. It has therefore been decided to provide a more suitable ‘conservation’ style bus shelter, which has been chosen in agreement with the Conservation Officer.
There will be no seating provided in the shelter in order to avoid a possible problem of inappropriate congregating in the evenings.
