Residents in Worsbrough have raised concerns about the location of bus stops on Station Road, which has led to increased congestion and speeding. Traffic, air pollution and buses were raised with me both by constituents contacting my office and at my residents’ drop-in in Worsbrough.
I have written to the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive who have agreed to arrange a site visit to look at the location of the bus stop. Last week I met with Stagecoach Yorkshire, the main bus company operating routes through Worsbrough, to share these concerns and ask them to look at timing points so buses aren’t waiting for lengths of times adding to the traffic problems.
Following our meeting, I will be following up on these issues with Stagecoach and the Passenger Transport Executive to see what more can be done to address residents’ concerns.
