We are currently consulting on the following bus stop schemes:


Waltham Road, Twydall

We would like to let you know that Medway Council is planning to undertake bus stop improvements in the vicinity of your property and invite your feedback on the proposals.

It is intended to provide a raised bus stop build out, and to extend the clearway at this stop by 6 metres to help users – especially those with mobility difficulties – to get on and off the bus.  The yellow bus stop clearway would be provided to enable buses to pull up fully and align with the new raised kerb. On street parking will be reduced by approximately 1-2 cars due to the extended clearway being proposed. The change at this stop (by providing the slight build out) has been designed to ensure the minimum possible impact on on-street parking provision.

This issue has been raised by passengers using the service. This has been considered by the local councillors who have agreed we can consult with local residents.

See the consultation plan on how the proposed new bus stop will look.

All responses must be received in writing to integratedtransport@medway.gov.uk

or by post to Integrated Transport, Medway Council, Gun Wharf, Dock Road, Chatham ME4 4TR

Closing date for consultation is close of business on Friday 31 August 2018

 

 

Beechings Way by Monmouth Close

We would like to let you know that Medway Council is planning to improve accessibility at a bus stop near your property and invite your feedback on the proposals.

It is intended to provide a hard standing area and raised bus boarder kerb within the existing grass verge, and to install a 17 metre long clearway. This will help bus users – especially those with mobility difficulties – to get on and off the bus.  The yellow bus stop clearway would be provided to enable buses to pull up fully and align with the new raised kerb. The change at this stop (by providing the slight build out) has been designed to ensure the minimum
possible impact on on-street parking provision.

The clearway will be in operation Monday to Saturday 7am to 7pm. No waiting or parking will be permitted in a bus stop clearway between these times when buses are running.

This is a result of Medway Council improving all bus stops on the 116/130 bus route to improve access for all users. We have had requests from Arriva and users to improve this stop as when the bus cannot pull up flush to the kerb, this does make it difficult for them to board and alight from the bus often between parked cars.

See the consultation plan on how the new bus stop will look.

113 Maidstone Road, Rainham

We are planning to make improvements to the bus stop in the area of 113 Maidstone Road and invite you to leave feedback on the proposals.

The plan is to relocate the existing bus stop from 109/111 to outside 113 Maidstone Road. This is to provide an 18 metre clearway at the stop to help the bus pull up on the kerb to allow passengers – especially those with mobility difficulties – to get on and off the bus safely without the need to walk in between parked vehicles.

The clearway will be in operation from 8.30am to 7.30pm, Monday to Saturday. During these times no stopping or waiting is permitted in the bus stop clearway.
