Bus Stop on Stockport Road


I reported recently on the Bus Stop to Go in favour of a zebra crossing.

Someone asked for a wider view and here it is. Across the road is Gee Cross Social Club on the corner of King Edward Avenue.

Someone else commented on the paucity of buses stopping here.

Monday to Friday the 206 stops here twice, shortly after 6 and 6.30pm on its way back from Manchester. (In the morning it travels to Manchester just after 7 and 7.30am).

The 304 stops here on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays just after 10am and 12.30pm en route to Marple.

The 346 is a half-hourly service from around 6.30am to 5.30pm Mondays to Saturdays. Additionally there are four buses, numbered 346 but run by a different company, in the evening (including on Sundays), one per hour from 8pm to 11pm.

The yellow notice has since disappeared. Whether this means the idea has been shelved or just that the time for consultation is over, I don't know.

Monday, Wednesday and Friday???? Is it a widespread phenomenon in England that buses don't run on days starting with T?

I'm sure there is a logical explanation.

Interesting Photo and Story behind it. Thanks for sharing!

Surely the zebra crossing could be the just a few feet away from the bus stop. I don't see why it has to be one or the other.
