Bus stopped!

How money seems to be wasted. This was the first bus stop along St Saviours Road in Larkhall where you could get on or off – after turning in from the London Road.

The first stopping point – off the London Road – in Larkhall’s St Saviour’s Road.

A year or so ago it was included in a scheme to improve such stopping points with a new pedestrian ‘island’ created so people could get on and off the bus in safety.

This notice must have been put up soon after the bus stop improvements were carried out. 

Now the local services have been ‘revised’ buses don’t stop there anymore so the road markings will, no doubt, be joining Bath’s other ‘ghost’ signs and fade into expensive history?

Apparently, l am told, the stops were upgraded with government funding for the Greater Bristol and Bath network initiative  at no expense to B&NES.
