Bus diversions will be put in place while annual maintenance work takes place at Norwich bus station.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

The annual maintenance will be taking place between 8pm and 6am on the nights of February 3 and 4.

Works are expected to be complete at 6am on Wednesday, February 5.

This year, the work will involve routine scheduled maintenance, including netting to the roof for bird deterrent.

Bus diversions will be put in place while the bus station is closed.

Those services which are 
scheduled to operate will stop on either Surrey Street or St Stephens Street.

Details of alternative stop 
locations is available by visiting Norfolk County Council’s website and the council will also put posters up at the bus station and at other bus stops in Norwich city centre.

The bus station will be closed to all vehicles and pedestrians during the works (reopening at 6am each day) but pedestrian access between Surrey Street and Queens Road will be maintained along the footpath next to the YMCA.

The county council has written to residents in the neighbouring area to let them know the timings for the works taking place.

The works are weather dependent and the timetable for completion of works may change.

  • What a disaster .Not enough room for buses , you have to cross in front of buses to get to some stands . At least the waiting room is nice and warm .

  • All they ever do is mess about with this badly designed bus station. It is not fit for its purpose and doesn't fulfill the needs of buses or passengers, the architect should be made to stand in there for a few hours every day to teach him a lesson

  • I wish they would do more than just routine maintenance on the joke of a bus station. The ridiculous 'architect's ego trip' of a roof that shelters no one, the lack of any facilities after 6 o'clock (when the buses run much later than that so passengers are still in need of a warm waiting area and loos), the lack of space for buses, the people forced to queue for their bus across the only crossing place in the station. Whoever designed this, and whoever signed off the design has obviously never had to wait for a bus there....but then I guess anything will do for us bus using plebs underneath as long as it was architecturally impressive and won some awards. If they held an award ceremony for being fit for purpose it wouldn't even get nominated.

  • Public transport stops for 'regular' maintenance on a bus station? this can't be carried out during normal operations? a bustsation designed for the 21st century? or to turn people off from using buses, ensure that they are interupted, herded behind metal gates like sheep and send from pillar to post to buy a bus ticket, not to speak of roofs and the deficiencies mentioned by others here.

  • They does not want maintenance, it wants redesigning and rebuilding. A complete pigs ear of a place, the toilets are not fit for purpose and the whole design of the place is poor, areas of wasted space and other areas overcrowded. The entrance is too narrow with buses barely able to negotiate it and the stands are too close together making it awkward for drivers. A classic example of how not to design a bus station.
