DUDLEY bus users are being warned of disruption during work on a £6.7m scheme to revamp of the town’s market.
Diversions will be in place during the work which will be ongoing from the junction with High Street, through Castle Street to the junction of Castle Hill until the summer.
The bus station will remain open throughout the Castle Street phase of the works when buses will not be permitted to exit via Castle Street.
Temporary shelters are to be installed outside Castle Hill Casino in Castle Hill, Dudley Central Mosque in Castle Hill, and in Birmingham Street after the junction with Bourne Street.
Cllr Kath Hartley, vice chairman of Centro, said: “It is important that people remember Dudley bus station will remain open during these major works.
“However temporary stops are being introduced because the works means some exit roads from the station will be closed, so bus users should check to see how their service may be affected.”
Councillor Khurshid Ahmed, Dudley cabinet member for transportation, said: “We are confident that the end result will be well worth it in terms of the benefits it will bring to all who work, do business, shop or visit in the town centre and I’d like to thank people in advance for their patience and co-operation”.
