Two years of works on the site will begin on Monday, September 3, and will eventually see general traffic on the east side of the gardens, with buses, taxis and pedestrians on the western side.

The idea behind the multi-million pound scheme is to create easier access to the improved green space at Valley Gardens.

New designs for Valley Gardens unveiledMartin Harris, Brighton and Hove Buses managing director, said: “We want to reassure passengers that buses will continue to run both ways throughout the Valley Gardens project. We will be working closely with the City Council to ensure that there is minimal disruption to passengers’ journeys as building work progresses.

“Valley Gardens is part of the vision for a more people-friendly, cleaner and more communal space. It will open up this part of Brighton and make it more attractive to visitors and residents alike.

“The end result will be extra green space; a simplified road layout with better links to the city centre and better access for pedestrians, cyclists and buses; as well as making it safer and easier to cross the road.”
