February 17, 2012 in Polsloe
Councillors in Newtown and Polsloe have joined together to ask Stagecoach and the County Council to provide bus shelters by the Mount Pleasant Health Surgery and Pharmacy. Residents in both Newtown and Polsloe wards who use this practice have called for better protection from the weather while waiting for a bus and also crossing facilities.
Both Councillors Richard Westlake and Richard Branston are also calling for a review of dropped kerbs within the area of the practice as some Polsloe/Newtown residents have difficulty with their wheelchairs where no drop kerb is provided.
Polsloe Candidate Rachel Lyons said, “There needs to be some protection from the weather for people using this bus stop. Also, Mount Pleasant Road can be a difficult road to cross, especially when the traffic is busy, so the introduction of drop kerbs and possibly
crossing facilities is something we have to look at.”
