Buses on diversion - Albion Street access

Work on the King's Lynn Transport Interchange project continues apace, since our last update reporting the revised stopping arrangements further developments have taken place, the smart revamp of the bus station office building is nearing completion and ground works have begun in preparation for the new herringbone layout and to allow construction of the feature canopy, meanwhile the main access road to the bus station - Market Street has been closed to allow footpath and road layout improvements to take place, as a result buses that are still serving the bus station must now enter and exit the bus station via the newly constructed access point on Albion Street. Our correspondent David Bell captured some photos of buses using the new entrance on its first day in use last Monday...
