All bus departures and arrivals southbound from King’s Lynn are moving.

The services will be temporarily relocated to Portland Street while work continues at the town’s bus station.

New signs will be displayed at key points around the area and buses will carry posters with the details of the move.

“This is a major refurbishment project for the town and we have already made lots of progress. The toilets have been given a make-over, we have relocated the taxi rank, a new northbound exit to Railway Road has been created,” said West Norfolk Council Cabinet member Alistair Beales.

The next phase of the £1.6m project will see a new canopy installed to provide protection from the elements. The bus station will also be resurfaced.

From Monday, March 9 to June 13, the following services will move to Portland Street: Norfolk Green services 37 (Southery), 38 (Middleton), 39 (Marham), 46 (Wisbech/March), 55 (The Walpoles) 505 (Spalding) and Hardwick 6. The First Group X1(Peteborough/Wisbech/Norwich/Yarmouth will also relocate along with the Konectbus Service 1 (Swaffham and Dereham).

All other services will remain at the bus station. Passengers are also being advised to allow extra time to get to Portland Street.
