Work to improve bus stops outside Norwich Rail Station for the benefit of passengers started in January 2007 for 12 weeks. The work involves building a new bus stop lay-by on the south side of Thorpe Road and a large sheltered waiting area between the bus stops on the station forecourt and Thorpe Road.

Within the waiting area there will be seating for 15 people and two dedicated wheelchair spaces, a ticket vending machine for pre-purchasing bus tickets that will help reduce boarding times and a sign giving real-time information on bus arrival and departure times. Cycle facilities will also be improved outside the Rail Station. A new cycle shelter with 20 covered stands will be built in the existing cycle parking area on the station forecourt. To enable the works to take place safely the station forecourt bus stop will be moved to a temporary position close to the steps leading from the station forecourt to Riverside, while the work takes place. At a later stage during the work, the Thorpe Road bus stops for both inbound and outbound services will be temporarily moved to positions further up Thorpe Road towards Lower Clarence Road to enable construction of the new bus lay-by.
