Colin Walker, transportation services group manager, said: “We apologise to bus passengers in Bridlington for the inconvenience caused by this temporary closure, but we hope they will appreciate the improvements we are making.
“We are carrying out the refurbishment at the quietest time of the year, to keep any disruption to an absolute minimum.
“At the end of the works, bus passengers will find the bus station looks much brighter and far more welcoming.
“We have already invested in the provision of real time bus information at Bridlington bus station, and these new works will further improve waiting facilities for passengers.”
