Why did the bus shelter cross the road?

You wait ages for one sheltered bus route, then three come along at once.

More bus users will have somewhere to wait out of the wind and rain, if planning permission is granted for a new shelter at L’Ancresse.

Traffic & Highway Services want to install a shelter at Les Mielles terminus, next to Keyprice. 

Tim Prout, of Traffic & Highway Services, stated: “The proposed installation accords with the States-approved “Integrated Transport Strategy”, inasmuch as it supports the desire to provide more environmentally sustainable transport infrastructure options for public use. 

The current bus shelter on the north side of the road protects only those people waiting for a 91 bus, which travels easterly towards the BridgeMoving the shelter to the southern side of the terminus and diverting current services into the terminus would benefit users of the 11, 12 and 91 routes. 

Vale Commons Council supports the proposals. There have also been consultations with the States of Guernsey Disability Officer to ensure suitable access to the shelter, and the States Archaeological Officer, as the site is of archaeological interest, although there will be no impact on that aspect of the site.
