Passengers forced out into the road to flag down bus
REGARDING the bus stop at Ringmore Way, West Park, in June 2012 the elderly/disabled at West Park requested help from Councillor Nicky Williams regarding health and safety at the bus stop.
Seven months later no progress has been made. The original sign was removed and the bus stop on the opposite side of the road made both directions.
The bus stop for the bus from Holly Park to Plymouth being non physical and invisible, means that cars and vans park there regularly between 108 and 112.
These vehicles block the view both to and from the approaching bus.

An 86-year-old partially sighted gentleman has to stand in the road waving his white stick to attract the attention of the bus driver. An elderly lady, wheelchair bound, had difficulty sighting the approaching bus, and can only hope the bus driver sees her before going past.
There are a number of elderly disabled persons who use this bus stop, all with difficulty due to the obstructed vision and problems getting on and off the bus if stopped in the middle of the road.
The problem could be erased by placing a bus stop between 112 and 114 Ringmore Way, or painting a bus bay.
