As a bus user, I’d say the driver is right. People use bus stops as a convenient shelters and as pick-up points for lifts. I’ve seen buses pull into stops where people were standing, only for no-one to actually get on. Multiply that by 10 stops per route and then there’ll be complaints about lateness.February 13, 2015 at 12:37 pm in reply to: Waterworld Replacement Unaffordable + Bodhyfryd Plans #72268
No-one mentions that the real reason behind all the closure/development plans is the reduction in central government funding from the Tory-led coalition government. Don’t blame the Council. And don’t let Andrew Atkinson get on board prasing any initiatives – his Tory pals have caused all this.
Blimey! There are more businesses in Caergwrle than there are in Wrexham town centre!
Ah, the 6 Nations. When people who take no interest in rugby from April to January assert their undying love for their national team.
People who turn right off a main road and cut across every available lane.
Stopping at a set of traffic lights for a few minutes hardly constitutes “chaos”.
People (particularly motorists) seem to believe that car parking should be free or as cheap as possible. However, car parking has to come at a price. Motorists expect a metalled surface with good drainage. Motorists expect good lighting plus security. Motorists expect marked-out bays to park in (given that some motorists can’t park in a straight line). And they expect some sort of monitoring or control to make sure that everyone pays. Remember the old car park where Simplygym is now? Do we want to go back to those days?
The problem is that the Erlas Walled Garden, which provides day opportunities for people with disabilities will also have to close if the hall gets sold on. Shame!
But introducing mini markets into King Street would surely only further reduce the trade in the town centre?
Hardly a personal interest.
The volunteers that we received at the Millennium EcoCentre did a lot of good work for us, particularly building and maintenance work. They were able to claim bus fare back from the training agencies, but couldn’t claim car mileage. Equally, some of the students with learning disabilities who used the EcoCentre were able to access the bus service with the old stop outside the Gredington being perfect for them. Losing that service meant a significant loss of independence for them.
For a planning application to use access to bus services as a positive point, when the only remains of the bus service is a disused bus stop, really is telling a lie.
Pete – the cycle route is open, but if you’re coming down from Wrexham, you need to turn right at the Gredington to go up to Bryn Estyn Lane and come back down to Clay’s Golf to pick up the new cycle path into the Industrial Estate.
