The coach park at the Wharf, Newbury has been closed, to start work on the new bus station.
For the coach walks, Barnes coaches will be leaving from the current bus station in Market Street.
The cars can continue to park in the same place.
At the back of the car park that we use, there is a convenient alley way that goes directly through to Market Street and this is the shortest walking route to the bus station.
