Essential resurfacing work at Queen Square bus station will start on Sunday 24 January and is due to last for about 10 weeks.
To minimise disruption to passengers and local businesses, the improvement work will be carried out in two phases and contractors will be working seven days a week to keep the closure period as short as possible.
Phase one (about five weeks) will involve the closure of the inbound carriageway, affecting the Royal Court alighting stop and stands 9 – 12. Most of the buses that call at stands 9 – 12 will be moved, and will pick up passengers from a temporary bus stop on Victoria Street, by the car park.
Buses which normally drop off at the Queen Square Royal Court alighting stop will be diverted. Most London Road services will be dropping off passengers at the Commutation Row bus stop before entering the city centre via the flyover onto Dale Street. Brownlow Hill and Renshaw Street services will divert via St John’s Lane and drop off passengers on Whitechapel.
Phase two (about five weeks) will involve the closure of the outbound carriageway for buses which would usually travel up the hill towards Lime Street station, affecting stands 1 – 8. Full details of where temporary stops will be sited during this phase of the works will be available closer to the time.
During the resurfacing work businesses in the surrounding area will be open and accessible as usual, the travel and information centre will remain open and there will be extra staff at key locations to direct bus passengers and give further travel information. Information will also be available on leaflets and posters, the Merseytravel website, via social media or by calling Traveline 0151 236 7676.
These essential works will result is smoother more comfortable journeys for customers.
