We are currently consulting on the following bus stop schemes:

Maidstone Road, Rochester, by St Margaret's Cemetery

Outside house number 90 Maidstone Road, it is proposed to provide a bus stop pier. This is the Chatham bound bus stop. It is envisaged that a raised kerb will be installed on this pier to help users – especially those with mobility difficulties – to get on and off the bus.  In front of the bus pier a yellow bus stop clearway would be installed to allow a bus to pull up to the raised kerb. Behind the bus stop clearway parking would still be available, and parking bays would be marked out that vehicles can park in. The existing bus shelter will remain in the same location.

On the bus stop opposite (Borstal-bound bus stop) a new raised bus boarder kerb will be installed to help those with mobility issues to board and alight the bus. The existing bus shelter, and bus stop clearway will remain.

Closing date for consultation is close of business on Friday 2 November 2018

 

Grange Road, Gillingham by Castlemaine Avenue

As part of potential local accessibility and road safety improvements a proposal to introduce a new pedestrian refuge island has been designed. The new island would be located between the bends on Grange Road not far from Castlemaine Avenue.  This would require removal of this bus stop (eastern side of the road - bus route towards Ingram Road).

This would mean the nearest Gillingham bound bus stops will be at Gillingham Green/Church Road (368 metres distance from here), or at King George Road (322 metres distance from here).

The purpose of this consultation exercise is to gather views on the proposal, where no decision on whether to proceed or not has yet been made. 

This consultation is taking place to inform whether the stop will be removed.
