Pressure is growing on Labour Councillors to agree to continue to de-ice all bus routes during the coming winter.
Another petition – containing the signatures of 175 residents living in the Kingsway, Danesfort Avenue and Hamilton Drive areas – has been submitted to the decision meeting that is taking place tomorrow (Wednesday 9th October West Offices, 4:00pm).
The petitioners point out that the Councils latest proposalsreprieve the Hollybank area which will now be gritted. That area has a 1 hour frequency 13A bus service, the same frequency as the number 24 Kingsway/St Stephens Road link.
The petition is in addition to those who signed a similar plea aimed at retaining gritting and salt bins in the St Stephens Road area.
A copy of all the written representations should be available on the Councils web site shortly. Click here.
Residents wishing to attend and speak at the meeting have only got until 5:00pm today (Tuesday) to register to do so. Telephone – (01904) 552062 Laura Bootland.
The Council has confirmed the list of salt bin sites that will be retained if their proposals go ahead. Around 2/3 of the existing bins are scheduled to be scrapped.
