THIS image shows the design of the new roof canopy which is under construction at Paignton bus station.

Stagecoach South West has closed the station until Friday, May 24, in order to carry out 'essential renovation works' to the roof canopy.

A spokesman for the company said: "As these visuals are focused on the canopy design, it is not accurate in every other detail. For example, it doesn't show the barriers around each stand, just the bollards."

During the station closure, all bus services are arriving and departing from Hyde Road, Great Western Road, and Torquay Road, opposite the Post Office.

    its often quicker to walk than wait for a bus in paignton. standing round at the bus stop like a lost soul. just get an electric bike kit. way more better and it recharges also. alot of people are not aware of just how good ebike kits are these days. try one and you will never step foot on a bus ever a again whether you are 8 or 80. they are less effort than driving a car

    It looks much smaller and providing a lot less shelter than the old one.

    I don't think Steve is quite ready for irony Bleach - unless of course he's gone all post-modern on us.
