6 June 2013

Fleet St still a mess. The council said that work would have reached the stage on May 22 to allow buses to come down Fleet St. This still hasn't happened two weeks later. Now the talk is that once buses do start coming down Fleet St as opposed to going up the diversion will not send bus numbers 12, 12A, 31, 32 and 34 down Union St to serve the stop at the bottom of Abbey Rd near the cinema. So anyone wanting to catch a bus from there will either have to walk down to Cary Parade, or the Harbour for the 32, or walk along way up the hill to the stop on Abbey Rd at the Casino. Personally I think this is a bit too far for some of the people who usually catch the bus at the cinema and some thought should be given to leaving things as they are until Fleet St is fit for two way traffic again. Why confuse everyone. Mind you the speed that the work is proceeding in Fleet St that day could be sometime next year.

I do hope Torbay Council never find the money to rip up the rest of Fleet St, so far it just hasn't been worth it.
