Christchurch Road Bus Stops

We have made changes to several bus stops in Pokesdown to improve their efficiency

As part of the our Three Town’s Travel programme, we have been trying to encourage more people to travel by bus, by making it safer, easier and more attractive.

In a bid to reduce bus delays and improve reliability we held a public consultation to determine the best layout for bus stops in Pokesdown. The consultation has resulted in changes to three bus stops on Christchurch Road, between Southbourne Road and Seabourne Road.

St James’s School Stop - towards Boscombe

The consultation on the location of this stop has resulted in it being moved away from the school crossing towards Bathwick Tyres. Designated bus stop markings have been provided to allow buses to properly access the stop in its new location.

Clarence Park Road Stop - towards Boscombe

Following the movement of St James’s School stop, this bus stop has been removed.

Clarence Park Road Stop - towards Iford

Following comments from users and residents this bus stop has been relocated to the area outside Tesco Express. To make the stop safer and more attractive for users a new bus shelter has been put in.
