New bus shelters have been installed in Marlow as part of the council’s efforts to revamp the town.

The “beyond repair and rust-ridden” bus shelters in Henley Road and Wiltshire Road have been replaced with new ones as Marlow Town Council ploughs ahead with renovation projects around the town.

A new shelter is also planned for the bus stop at the junction of Newtown Road and Little Marlow Road, which currently does not have one, using funding from Wycombe District Council’s ward budgets.

The town council says the stop is “widely used by residents” and the shelter will be a “welcome addition for travellers”.

Cllrs Richard Scott and Suzanne Brown submitted a funding application to Wycombe District Council for £2,926 for the new shelter, with £13,000 expected to have come from the town council’s community infrastructure levy reserves for the entire project.

Mayor Jocelyn Towns said: “These shelters are more in keeping with the town and are a great improvement to the street scene in Marlow.”
