A long time coming

Over a year ago the bus stop by Bartons off licence on Bolton Road was destroyed in a car accident. A temporary stop was eventually erected but was very unsatisfactory for two reasons. The bus drivers could not see the sign and often would not stop and to get the buses to stop passengers had to walk into the middle of the road.

Mary Peet of Bolton Road first drew my attention to this problem about six months ago and since then I have been pestering the Council and GMPTE to have a proper bus stop erected. And finally last week this was done. The picture shows Mary and friends at the new bus stop.

I am now asking the GMPTE to put markings on the road to further highlight the bus stop.
