Is this really a bus stop?
Is this really a bus stop?
The idea of having a bus stop in a set of lock-up garages might be thought rather bizarre, but there is a good reason.
When the two tower blocks - Winchester and Woodthorpe Courts - were refurbished for elderly persons, there was a campaign for a bus service right to the blocks due to the steep access road into the site off Sherwood Vale. The road layout to the blocks was designed without expectation of a bus service, and forms a cul-de-sac. The normal roads do not provide any space for a bus to turn round, so the only recourse was to loop the route through the garage yard. When first started, the road surface was nowhere near as well constructed as it is today.
