IMPROVEMENTS to bus shelters in Kelbrook will take place next year, a report says.

Stops on the Earby and Barnoldswick routes were scheduled this year but were delayed.

They are now planned for the 2008/9 financial year, West Craven Committee will be told.

Shelters on New Road, Earby, will be included in the county council's Quality Bus Scheme, a package of measures to improve bus journeys in partnership with local councils, bus operators and the police.

An assessment of the requirements for bus shelters at this and other sites will form part of the project.
