Plans for Gravesend bus hub

Kent County Council will be holding a public information event on plans to build a bus interchange in Gravesend town centre.

Barrack Row and Garrick Street will be redesigned to allow bus services to be based there, with vehicle access restricted to create more space for pedestrians.

There will be seven bus stops at the interchange with the proposals aiming to improve the interchange between rail, bus and walking.

It will also link in with the recent improvements to the station forecourt and will be the final phase of improvements in creating a transport quarter.

Information about the scheme will be available to the public from Thursday, June 13 for two weeks at Gravesend Civic Centre and officers will be available on June 13 between 2pm and 7pm to answer any questions.

All the information will also be available online at www.kent.gov.uk/graveshambushub and comments can be made to gravesendbushub@kent.gov.uk or by post to Gravesend Bus Hub, Transport Innovations, 1st Floor Invicta House, County Hall, Maidstone  ME14 1XX.

The scheme is supported by the Government’s Local Growth Fund, allocated by the South East Local Enterprise Partnership.

Work is scheduled to start in Spring/Summer 2020 and will take up to six months to complete.

Road closures may be required, however KCC says it will look for ways to minimise the impact and ensure public transport services suffer limited disruption.
