A new bus shelter has been installed on Tillmouth Avenue, near its junction with Swarland Avenue in Seaton Delaval, as part of the Council’s ongoing bus shelter maintenance and replacement programme.
A number of residents had approached Ward Councillors to ask for a bus shelter at the location as the bus stop is in the middle of the housing estate and is used by a number of elderly residents to get buses to Cramlington or Whitley Bay. The new shelter provides bus users with cover from the weather and somewhere to sit while they are waiting for their bus.
Cllr. Eva Coulson, one of the Council’s three Ward Councillors for the area said ‘I am really pleased that we now have a shelter at this busy location. I have received lots of positive feedback following the installation and it has made a great difference to residents who are using the local buses’.
The Council is planning to install another bus shelter on Tillmouth Avenue, opposite the junction with Denham Drive and will be consulting with residents close to the location before the installation work commences.
