BUS passengers are being reminded that a station in Farnworth will close for redevelopment next week.

The King Street station will shut after the final bus service on Sunday, March 4.

The refurbished station will boast improved bus shelters and seating, CCTV, street lighting, cycle parking, and improved passenger information and signage.

Buses will use existing bus stops on Market Street or temporary stops nearby while work takes place.

During construction, King Street will be closed to all vehicles at the junction with Market Street — access for local residents and businesses will be maintained from the Albert Road junction.

At the same time, the junction of King Street and Market Street will be upgraded to improve pedestrian access into the town centre and bus journeys to and from the new bus station.

These arrangements will be in place until the bus station reopens, which is expected to be this summer.

TfGM staff will be on hand at the bus station site on Monday, March 5 to give information and advice.
