Work to install a brand new passenger information system at Middlesbrough bus station is set to begin.

The new system will enhance the passenger experience at the bus station with bigger and brighter displays containing bus information.

Real time technology, featuring accurate up-to-date arrival and departure times, will be gradually introduced on the displays as bus companies implement the system on their buses.

The new displays, in the concourse and on the bus stands, will also feature a cutting edge system that can relay live bus information audibly to blind or partially sighted people.

Work to install the system will start on Monday, July 4 and is due to be completed by early September.

The funding for the system comes from the Tees Valley Bus Network Improvement Scheme, which is funded by the Department for Transport.

Councillor Nicky Walker, Middlesbrough Council’s Executive Member for Streetscene Services and Transport, said: “This new system will bring the latest technology to Middlesbrough bus station and will be a real improvement for all passengers.

“It will also enhance the bus station as a whole and make it a real transport hub for the 21st century.”

During the work the electronic information signs will not be in service.

In order to minimise disruption work will be carried out when the bus station is closed overnight.

Notices about the work will be placed at all entrances to the bus station.
