King’s Lynn bus station was re-opened to south-bound buses on Monday, and all buses and coaches are now using the new stands.

Norfolk County Council have confirmed the new drop-off point near the museum will be opened once the paving has been finished.

Temporary bus stops in Portland Street, that had served south-bound buses since March, have been removed, and the road has been surface dressed to cover up the bus stop markings.

Double yellow lining has been replaced to restore the road to its original layout.

The temporary parking restriction has now been lifted for sections outside double-yellow lines.

New railings along the east and north sides of the bus station have been installed this week, and railings along the west side are due to be finished today (July 4). Slab-laying alongside the museum will continue next week.

Next week work will start outside the rail station to renew paving between the station frontage and the revised crossing at Blackfriars Road. This will complete the link between bus and train stations, one of the main aims of the scheme.
