As the Council starts its project to spend £500,000 on a city centre bus rank, residents of Acomb can be forgiven for thinking that they are the poor relations.
It is now 2 years since the public transport information point on Front Street ceased working.
The Council promise Rougier Street bus stop users “use of lighting and public art to make the facilities generally more attractive, and a better place to spend time waiting for a bus”
Meanwhile Acomb passengers must wait in the rain with no “next bus” displays.
The Council has said that it won’t even “grit” most of the number 24 bus route in winter.
The Council should either bring the information screen back into use or remove it.
It serves only as a memorial to the double standards of a Labour Council which has got its priorities so badly wrong.
