Grimsby’s Riverhead bus shelters to have a facelift in bid to improve passenger experience

10:52 am, Monday, 13th June 2022 - 2 years ago


Benches at the Riverhead bus station are set to be improved to make the area a cleaner and more pleasant area for bus passengers.

Following reports of passengers facing an unpleasant wait for their journey within some of the town centre’s bus stops, new stainless-steel seat covers will be installed to benches on stands C, D, E and F.

The new seating will act as a barrier to prevent rubbish and other debris from collecting in the bench slats in the bus shelters. This will improve the area for passengers and improve the facilities for everyone who uses them. 

While the works are underway, safety barriers will be in place to prevent injury to the public and staff.

Contractors, Bacons Engineering, will be on site from Thursday 16 June and works will take three days.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for environment and transport, said: “Our aim is to encourage as many people as possible to use our local bus services, so making sure that the facilities on offer in Grimsby town centre are in good, clean condition is really, important aspect of that work.”

Members of the public are encouraged to do their bit by putting safe litter in the bin, and people are urged to report any unsafe waste to the council by calling (01472) 313131 and asking to speak to the Environmental Health team.
