Passengers are being warned of disruptions as King's Lynn bus station is to close to vehicles for five days next month for resurfacing works.
Bus and coach services will continue to operate between June 1 and 5, but will be relocated while the final stages of the £1.6 million regeneration project are completed.
All parties involved agreed this approach would cause the least amount of overall disruption.
Nick Daubney, leader of West Norfolk Council, said: 'This is a major refurbishment project and we are already starting to see how much better it will be once complete.
'We are expecting completion towards the end of June and would like to thank everyone for their co-operation and patience over the last few months.'
