When's the next bus please?

It would appear the council in Maltby, South Yorkshire have erected a bus stop/shelter costing 6000 on a road where there is no bus route ??? ::) :smiley-laughing:

That'll be part of the Strategic Bus Stop Reserve, ready for an emergency change of bus route.

couldn't be a case of 'we've got this in the budget, and if we don't spend it next year we'll have less' could it ?

or a local job creation scheme for bus stop erectors ?

as we all know, council departments never talk to each other so a bus stop built by one dept would not need anyone to have even looked at a bus timetable, would it  :doh:

Sounds like  one of the things on these Mysterious  Structures programmes,
usually built by the Commies or the Jairmans.........

Maybe a  hideout for Arthur Scargill (Is he still with us ?)

off topic,

but I heard that during the miners strikes, some plods had T-shirts printed with

'SPMM'

on them .... cause they were getting so much overtime

'Scargill Paid My Mortgage'

not exactly intended to endear them to the miners striking to save their jobs and communities
