It is now easier for people to get into the quickly transforming Stockton Town Centre thanks to the completion of a new bus loop.
As part of the town’s regeneration, improvements have been made to the road layout for buses at the northern end of the High Street and new bus shelters have been installed.
The road and bus stops between Debenhams and Marks and Spencer were finished in April and now the road and bus stops on the opposite side in front of Darlington Building Society and the Royal Oak are finished too.
Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport, Councillor Mike Smith, said: “I am pleased to see the new bus loop complete. New road layouts like this are an important element of the town’s regeneration as they mean people can travel into the heart of Stockton more easily so that they can make the most of the businesses, independent shops and eateries which are based here.
“The physical changes to the town are just the start of the town’s regeneration. Not only are they improving the appearance of the town centre but they are also making it easier to get into and around the town which in turn will benefit the businesses in the longer term by encouraging more people to visit to shop and use the eateries and leisure facilities.”
