Errant Shopping Trolly Causes Bus To Collide With Post
28th February 2016
More bus drama at the top of Church Road this weekend as a Sussex Bus hit the 'no loading'signpost outside Quench.
Regular readers will be aware that cars straying beyond the parking bay alongside Barclays Bank results in it being near impossible for buses making the 'hairpin turn' from Station Road
to avoid the parked vehicles and the post on the opposite side of the road.
On Saturday morning however, it wasn't an illegally parked car, but a shopping trolly that was the cause of the latest incident.
Your reporter spotted the trolly when driving up past the bank on Saturday morning, instantly thinking that it could cause an issue. Quench thought the same...
On Thursday evening, another Sussex Bus became wedged against a car that was parked outside of the disabled bay, it caused all sorts of traffic chaos at the Station Road Roundabout with Mill Road & Church Road. Patrons of Quench had to help guide the bus driver to minimise damage.
Everyone agrees that this situation has got beyond a joke now and that West Sussex Council Council Highways department MUST take immediate action.
We keenly await any developments.
