Bus passengers who used the Barnstaple Park and Ride are now being directed to a new bus stop.

Councillor John Mathews raised it with Stagecoach after the closure of the park and ride, so a timetable with directions to the nearest stop on Newport Road has been placed in the old shelter.

If the route is successful he has also asked the company to consider making the buses more frequent.

Mr Mathews said in time he believed the town would gain new park and ride facilities both at Roundswell and at Westacott to serve the other side once the Link Road is improved.
