It's the same the other way.
Are you sure about that as Clayton, Aldi not a timing point but Droylsden, Cemetery Road Tram Stop (Stop A) is so could turn off onto edge lane and north road

Not to sure whether or why it would go via Edge Lane and North Road as doesn't MCT's 217 do the same route, mind you it would be a viable alternative to 217 if 230 did go this way.

Green bus funding has been awarded but only for 32 of the BYD/Enviro City Enviro400's all will work from Sharston Depot on two specific routes. The remaining part of the bid for a further 73 has been unsuccessful on this occasion.

Thanks for clarifying the bid being part of the application for 105 such buses. Obviously, the 43 will be one route but that doesn't leave much left. The question is, how will this affect the declared intent to move remaining low emission buses to other south M' cr, Trafford and Salford routes?
