- Scheme overview
To support and encourage use of local bus services by improving access and convenience for getting on and off the bus at two locations where access is currently restricted;
- Bramdean Drive Bus Stop (Botley Drive);
- Botley Drive Bus Stop (Purbrook Way).
To reduce delays for buses, enhance safety and improve convenience for bus passengers boarding and alighting the service, buildouts (section of pavement extending from the pavement to the edge of the road) has been installed at the point of the existing bus stops to allow buses to stop in-line with passengers waiting on the pavement and to provide a clearer more convenient route for passengers getting off the bus. The buildouts will also reduce delays for services by allowing buses to proceed directly from the stop, rather than waiting to re-enter the main traffic lane.
