Its time the 651 bus returned to Booths Lane and Bowman and Caddick Roads. This mini estate currently has no bus coverage and many elderly residents have to walk hundreds of yards to the Queslett Road to catch the 651 or 451 buses. The small size of the 651 buses would make it the ideal choice to use back on the old route which covered these roads The excuse that it was difficult to get these buses into this estate has now been resolved as the Queslett / Nova Court junction has been widened. The extra journey time would only be a few minutes at the most.
Taking the 651 away from these roads showed an appalling understanding of the needs of elderly bus users and a lack of vision.
I am now in touch with senior officers at Centro trying to encourage them to have another review of the situation.
