Iconic shelters for seafront

New bus shelter on seafront (large version)

The seven old, brown bus shelters at The King’s Statue are being replaced with modern, stylish, sailing-inspired shelters.

As part of the £4.75m Weymouth Showcase element of the transport package, the new shelters will also have real time information displays for passengers to see exactly when the next bus is due.

Three shelters on the beach side of The Esplanade have been installed so far and the remaining four will be installed on the shop side of The Esplanade in July, after the bus stop improvement work in the area has been completed.

The glass for the shelters will be fitted once the final surfacing of the road has been laid, and the real time information displays will be operational later this year.
