BUS SERVICES which have moved away from Arbroath Bus Station while a £72,000 improvement scheme was ongoing will revert back to normal on Friday.

The Angus Council project was undertaken to make it easier and safer for larger vehicles to access the stands, minimising the risk of damage to buses and enabling better access to the sides of vehicles for luggage.

With effect from the first departures on Friday, local bus services X7, 43, 43A, 44 and 44A will revert to picking-up and setting-down in the bus station.

Some services will depart from different stances from those previously used and passengers are advised to check the timetable displays and information boards.

Arbroath Bus Station is busy with reversing vehicles throughout the day and car drivers are reminded that they are not permitted to enter the station either for parking or dropping off/picking up.

The only vehicles allowed in the confines of the facility other than local bus services are vehicles operated by Arbroath Taxis and deliveries to the stance café.
