I don't suppose anyone knows how long it takes for a bus shelter to be replaced? Someone has demolished the one in the layby at Beeslack that I use Sad No doubt the weather will now turn very wet, cold and windy Rolling Eyes

Okay, I wrote to the council asking them and they replied saying that it is likely to be 6 to 8 weeks Sad. Hopefully it will be done this side of Christmas.

Seems like some bored people have decided that bus shelters will provide some "entertainment" for them as I see the one at the bottom of Mauricewood Road has been covered in marker pen graffiti. The one on the other side of the road is okay, apart from the piles of leaves you have to negotiate to get to it!

As if it weren't bad enough that we're still waiting for a replacement bus shelter, when I went to get my bus yesterday I found this on the opposite side of the road Sad



I had a closer look and although there wasn't much to see, there was a small piece of number plate amongst the rubble.

Finally, at last we have a shiny brand new bus shelter cheers They couldn't have timed it better as it's such a miserable day.

Noticed it on my way back today along with several in Loanhead. Hard to miss with that green colour they seem to like for the new bus stops Smile

Unbelievably there seems to have been another accident at the hole in the wall above. The gap is now as wide as the tape shown in the picture.

I've just been for a cycle and coming up Grahams road I noticed that a large section of the wall just before the primary school janitor's house has been knocked down.
