Calverton Road Area, Arnold - Proposed Bus Stop Clearways

Closed 21 Aug 2020

Opened 22 Jul 2020


Parking at bus stops causes accessibility issues and can delay bus services as passengers have to walk out into the road to board. The stops, shown on the consultation plans, have been identified as suitable for accessibility improvements including enforceable bus stop clearways and raised boarding kerbs in order to promote sustainable travel. The main benefits of bus stop clearways are to:

Help the bus align with the kerb to enable better access for disabled passengers and  pushchair users;

Ease congestion as a correctly aligned bus will not block the road for other road users;

Ensure that bus drivers discharge their duty to drop passengers off on the kerb and not on the road;

Ensure that bus services operate on time and are not unnecessarily delayed.
