Glass bus shelter open for passengers
It has been almost five years in the making but Blenheim's newest bus shelter is officially open.
The $300,000 shelter features glass walls, wooden seating and an indoor and outdoor waiting area.
The Marlborough Friendship Force has campaigned for the new shelter at the railway station since 2013, when a group of Australian visitors they were hosting spent an hour waiting in the rain for a bus.
Marlborough Deputy Mayor Terry Sloan said at the official opening on Tuesday the shelter was a "testament to the lobbying" from the friendship group and would give visitors both arriving and leaving the town a "good impression".
