  Mersey Gateway Bridge Diversions
Posted by: trixmax2000 - 27/07/2017 15:45 - No Replies

With the opening of the new Mersey Gateway Bridge in the autumn the old Silver Jubilee Bridge will be closed at the same time for up to a year for major refurbishment,This will have a major impact on both Arriva & Halton Transport,

See Halton have already published on what they will be doing here is the plan,
14A as normal from Murdishaw to Halton Lea the Castle fields then direct to the new bridge missing out the Old Town and West Bank,
14C will extend from Vicarage Road to West Bank,
61A will start at Halton Hospital and go via the station then High St and Halton Road and the new bridge then Vicarage Road.
62/62A normal until High St then none stop via the Expressway and new bridge to Vicarage Road.

As for ARRIVA they have not put out any information yet

  New Bolton Interchange
Posted by: Alexw12 - 05/07/2017 07:11 - Replies (2)

I think a thread for this would be necessary since the Bolton news is reporting that the current bus station on, Moore Lane, is in its last few weeks of operation. All of the structure of the new bus station is complete and the outside floor surface is also complete.

A look back on the Moore Lane bus station http://www.theboltonnews.co.uk/news/1538..._the_ages/

  Local bus usage figures for 15/16 published
Posted by: knutstransport - 15/06/2017 12:07 - Replies (37)

https://www.gov.uk/government/statistica...r-journeys

Compared to 14/15:

Halton - 0.3 million INCREASE
Cheshire East - 0.3 million INCREASE
Cheshire West - No change
Blackburn with Darwen - No change
Blackpool - 0.3 million DECREASE
Cumbria - 0.8 million DECREASE
Merseyside - 0.9 million DECREASE
Warrington - 1 million DECREASE
Lancashire - 2.5 million DECREASE
Greater Manchester - 8.1 million DECREASE

Obviously 0.3m increase in Halton is more impressive than the same figure for Cheshire East and 1 million decrease in Warrington is much worse than 0.9 million decrease in Merseyside due to the difference in population between areas.

  Police getting on buses
Posted by: acocker96 - 18/05/2017 14:00 - Replies (14)

It's common to see uniformed police getting on buses in Greater Manchester and I've noticed they are able to get on for free understandably so.

But is this down to bus company/tfgm policy or just goodwill from the driver? I hope it's both to be honest.

Same goes for drivers of rival companies, is that like a comradery thing aka good will or company/tfgm policy?

Morning all,

Noted in the yard of Fusco Coaches this morning at 05:50 was the Liberal Democrats's General Election campaign 'battle bus'. Unfortunately I couldn't ID it, except to say that it was a Van Hool double decker.
