I don't think that they'd want to go back to square one - having two sets of land! The land in question would probably be big enough to be a replacement depot. With Hawthorne Road currently in the middle of being regenerated, I wouldn't be surprised if the existing depot (and the business next-door) were included in that scheme.

I agree. It'd be perfect for them. For drivers, it'd cause little trouble, with it being around the corner from the existing site. Boards wouldn't need to be changed - buses would practically be running from the same place. It all seems to make sense, however none of this has been confirmed yet - we shouldn't get our hopes up!

I know three drivers that drive for Bootle but to be honest I am not going to ask them about it as you know how doing this can be treated on the forum and drivers are not always privvy to everything that goes on.
