Blackpool set to get new bus lane

A bus lane will be added to Blackpool's Central Drive as part of a £1m investment in the town's bus services.

Traffic lights will also be modified to give priority to buses with the funding allocated from the government's Better Bus Area Fund.

Fred Jackson, Blackpool council cabinet member for Streets and Transport, said: "It is a big input to improve the quality of bus journeys in the town."

He said the changes would "increase the economic growth in the town centre".
