#Walton bus shelter news ………….

Corfe Avenue is situated between Arundel Road and the shops at the bottom of Amberley Slope.

Corfe Avenue is situated between Arundel Road and the shops at the bottom of Amberley Slope.

In response to a recent article in the Walton FOCUS Team newsletter about people wanting a bus sheter in Corfe avenue, Cllr Asif Shaheed and Cllr Nick Sandford, have now received an email from someone near the proposed location who is very opposed to the idea, on the grounds that it might attract young people to hang around and cause trouble.

Nick has been told there will be a public consultation on the issue later this year before any decision is made. If you have any views, please respond to the consultation but also it would be good if you could also give your views to Nick or Asif.

The Walton FOCUS Team have also been asked about the possibility of a new bus shelter on Mountsteven Avenue, at the stop near the Marne Avenue junction.

This stop is well used by people heading into City Centre on the no1 route and currently people often have to wait in the rain.

The stop has only been there around 10 years….. having been put in shortly after the bus routes were reorganised in 2004.
