(02 Apr 2024, 8:05 am)Adrian I've not noticed it, but in Newcastle, stops/shelters aren't managed by Nexus. They instead re-direct you to contact the Clear Channel damage hotline on 08007313699.

If I'm correct no bus stops in the North East are managed by Nexus. If they have an advertising board on it then it's done by Clear Channel in return for the advertising space. If not, then it's done by the respective council, hence all the bee bus stops in Sunderland and nowhere else and all the brick bus stops which are mostly unique to Gateshead. 

There's also a lot less shelters in both Gateshead and South Tyneside aswell from what I've seen.

In Northumberland the responsibility is the local parish council, Durham I'm unsure.

I wonder if it was a temporary move as the Cathedral works have got a large bit of path blocked and it was causing bottlenecking or equipment/vehicles couldn't manouever during the resurfacing closure works around there

(01 Apr 2024, 7:46 pm)Rob44 Could they give who every sorts the bus stands out 500 quid to replace the one at the north end of the high level bridge. Have 106 buses stopping at now one stop is bordering on idiocy. even if they put 2 stands together it would be better but back too two stops please!!

What time scale is that please for 106 buses for one stop?

That's a shame. It was almost believable!

Is there a handy summary anywhere of what BSIP funding has actually provided in terms of new or improved links in the North East (particularly in the Nexus area)?  Comparing it to Cumbria where it looks like some genuinely useful new links, later connections and actual frequency increases (not just publically funded reversals of recent commercial reductions) have been generated https://www.stagecoachbus.com/service-up...:00:53:197 - I am struggling to think of much locally that has improved beyond those reversals of commercial reductions, or stepping in to fund the likes of Arriva's withdrawal North of Tyne area.  So genuinely interested if there's a list for our area - is it better than I think?
