Arriva Buses Wales - Chester Depot

It would be Wrexham, not Rhyl. Wrexham is only about 10 mile from Mold so the Mold services would be ok. Have 1 staff bus going back and forth to Broughton Park and work out driver duties so everyone comes off together.
10/10A and the Blacons would be the biggest issue. If they put enough buffer room in, I suppose the 4/X4 could move the terminus to Chester interchange and interwork but that would be a risky move with traffic delays.
Alternatively send the 11 via Sealand Road and the 10A via Broughton. Keep interworking the 10 and 10A so drivers come off in Broughton. This then leaves only the Blacons.

If a union agreement allowing drivers to have their breaks at Chester Bus Station was allowed, it would help the situation as that is then the 10/10A and the Blacons covered (currently, if drivers had their break at the bus station, they need to be on full pay, if they return to the depot, they aren't paid breaks).
