Bus stops – temporary closures
If you need to temporarily close a bus stop, simply complete our form and return it with the full payment.
A standard closure costs £150 per stop.
The standard rate applies if the application and payment is made more than 3 working days before the bus stop closure is required.
An emergency closure costs £350 for 1 stop and £150 for each additional stop at the same site.
The emergency rate applies if the application and payment is made within 3 working days before the bus stop closure is required.
Please pay within 2 hours of applying, otherwise we can’t ensure the emergency works will be carried out.
Closures are charged per stop and must be paid in advance.
Additional charges may be incurred if we’re not able to re-open the stop on the date you requested, without giving us 24 hours prior notice.
Cancelling or amending a temporary bus stop closure
You need to give us a minimum of 3 working days’ notice before the requested closure date if you need to cancel or change your bus stop closure order. Otherwise, there may be additional charges.
About the service
Often when working on the highway, it's necessary to temporarily close a bus stop to avoid conflict between bus users and the work being carried out.
Once you've got a work permit from the Network Management team, we offer the bus stop closure service. That includes:
- closing the bus stop
- providing a temporary stop (where appropriate)
- on-site and electronic notices
- the re-opening of the stop once works are complete.
