Royal Oak terminus being a little unsuitable as the roads are getting busier
and it is a bit of a task getting the bus around the turn in one go
especially if there are cars parked along side the wall.
This is one option that I heard whispered. The 236/7 could terminate here
like the many moons ago when the 214 (I think)came up here.
Its certainly big enough although the road leading upto here is a bit busy
with parked cars as I saw yesterday doing the 390s. I managed to do all 8
trips without self harming and made it in today too. Nothing special today,
2 on a 216 which was very quiet, and then a trip to Gee Cross International
on a 389. Pretty odd though, I don't do a 389 for months now I have them for
3 days in a row all at different times of the day. Never mind.
Noticed the other day too when the 217/8 goes to Shudehill on Monday it is
also reverting back to the old route down Old Mill Street and over Great
Ancoats street. Shame that, we were just starting to see post office staff
using it to Clayton and the likes.
