As part of the development of the bus boulevard in the centre of Swindon, the dozen or so bus stops in Fleming Way will be closed from next month.

It mainly affects town services operated by Swindon Bus

Quote
From 4 September, following the announcement that Fleming Way will be shut for two years whilst major restructuring of the area is undertaken, all buses will use different bus stops. There will not be as much space available as in Fleming Way, therefore customers are advised to clearly signal by putting your hand out for the bus that you want to stop.

Thanks for this, useful to know.

Also, off-topic: the 'Major restructuring of Fleming Way'.

Fleming Way being the road that sits on top of the long abandoned Wilts and Berks canal and its junction with the North Wiltshire Canal. Old OS (Ordnance Survey) mapping shows this well - though, not at the time of the date of this map, the (alleged) fragrance beneath the August sun.

In an alternate reality in which the canal was reinstated on its original route, I for one would like to be the first to greet our strange new Swindon-dwelling waterbus-providing overlords.

..and now as a result of the work in Fleming Way the Travelshop is closing - it wasn't that long ago that it was refurbished.
