Sprint Bus Shelters
95 distinct and high-quality bus shelters will be installed along the Sprint corridor, providing easily accessible and enhanced waiting facilities for passengers.
The new shelters will be larger and modernised compared to current bus shelters, and will contain seating, real time passenger information, and CCTV cameras to improve safety at the stops and surrounding areas. Our prototype shelter can be found at the Coventry Rd/Kings Rd stop on the A45 in Hay Mills.
What construction work will be involved?
Utilities work for new shelter installation is currently taking place along stops on the A34. The work is carried out in three phases beginning with the removal of the existing shelter. Utilities – such as communications cabling will either be relocated or replaced followed by a temporary reinstatement of the footway and shelter area. The new shelter will then be installed at a later date as part of other works in the area.
Due to the sequencing of the works, there may be some time between the existing shelter being removed, the bus stop upgrade taking place and the new shelter being installed. The time between these activities will be kept to a minimum where possible to reduce any disruption. Residents living near bus shelters will be notified of any shelter works outside of their properties.
