Roundabout at Egerton Road
Roundabout at Egerton Road
A Birkenhead Corporation bus on the anticlockwise North Circle route 94 negotiates the hourglass shaped roundabout at the junction Egerton Road and Tollemache Road (rear left). Until just a few years previously this had been simply a wide open space of road which in the other direction could be swept through at speed to take a run at the ensuing gradient on Tollemache Road.
Birkenhead Corporation would lose control of its buses in a couple of years' time with the formation of the Merseyside PTE.
This is one of a series of views featuring buses in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. LinkExternal link
