First have applied to the council to change the U1 bus service from September 2nd so it only stops at Corn Street in town and crosses Churchill Bridge, the next stop being in Widcombe close the the railway bridge for access to the railway station.
James Freeman at First says this change in service is to reduce pollution in Dorchester street, Manvers street and the centre of Bath.
We and the other affected Resident’s association have objected strongly, as have David Martin for the Lib Dems and Matt Cochrane our local councillor.
The Federation of Bath residents Associations is discussing this at their meeting tonight. We have made it clear that we strongly object to the change to FoBRA, Mr. Freeman at First and Matt Cochrane. A compromise which would have a limited number of U1’s going through Bath is being suggested. We understand that Widcombe Residents Association also object to the change of route.
There will be a meeting at St. Mary’s Bathwick Church Hall on 26th July from 7:00 to 9:30 pm to meet Wera Hobhouse, our MP, and Mr Freeman from First will be there.
