Stockport Road Bus Stop again


This third shot of the threatened-with-closure bus stop shows the view looking up Stockport Road.

Traffic sweeps around the bend by the Werneth Hotel at the bottom of Treacle Brow, which makes crossing the road to the stop on the other side rather hazardous.

On the right-hand side of the picture is a gatso or speed camera.

I think the camera is set to capture traffic coming in the opposite direction.

A zebra crossing here would seem to make sense. It wouldn't affect the siting of the opposite stop and on this side there is already a stop going up Stockport Road only about 50 yards further down near the Big Tree Memorial.

but today there is no traffic, because, of ocurse, everyone remembered it was "European don't-use-your-car" day (at least that's what we've been told on the news)

That's the first I've heard. Lots of cars as usual on the road this morning. Nothing on news either.

I used this stop this morning (both sides) and there are some roadworks just below the stop. Whether this in connection with a zebra construction or something else I don't know.

Excellent picture, right up my street metaphorically speaking!
