Buses On Diversion - Clough Lane, King's Lynn - photo special!

As previously reported in our update last week King's Lynn Bus Station is closed this week between 1st-5th June to allow resurfacing works as part of the King's Lynn Transport Interchange Project to take place, during this time the Northbound bus services that have been using the Bus Station are relocated to a new set of temporary stops at Clough Lane near the St James Multi Storey Car Park.

Our regular correspondent David Bell was in King's Lynn this morning and has kindly supplied a selection of photographs showing buses on diversion, the car park provides an impressive modern backdrop - especially on a bright day...
