The bus stop on The Avenue needs to be properly reinstated. No road markings and cars blocking it.

Its an estate to the West of Wallsend where the 18 used to run. One of the access points is through a low metro bridge.

Exactly, might try Prudhoe Station as a location, if it's going about on the 10B tomorrow, and somewhere like Folly if it's on the 10A.

I would expect it to be out tomorrow, but due to no vandal screen, will not be out late.

You would've thought they'd have Vandal Screen's going by the southern end of the route it serves at EYMS Tongue

Unless things have improved since the late 80s, they simply don't send buses out late, there! (Fond memories of having to budget for a taxi home if staying out after 9pm)
