Bus shelters at the fast evolving £25-million Llanelli East Gate development will be modified this month.
Carmarthenshire Council’s technical services division has been in discussions the developer Britannia Construction and agreed modifications following complaints from passengers.
There were concerns over the uncomfortable angled seating and rain being driven into the shelters when the weather is bad.
County head of transport and engineering Stephen Pilliner said: “The modifications entail extending the glazed areas to the front and rear of the shelters by a metre with an additional 1.5metre extension to provide another end glazed panel to help prevent wind and rain blowing into them.
“The extension panel will remain open at the front and rear to ensure adequate space for the passengers get on the bus and left.“The seating will also be extended and levelled within the extended glazed area.”
The East Gate leisure development due for completion this Autumn incorporates a multiplex Odeon Cinema, a Travel Lodge Hotel, retail and restaurant outlets right alongside the new £1-million bus station.
