Bus Stop broken and fallen down on Main A35 Bridport to Dorchester Bus Route

Reported via desktop in the Sign issue (NH) category anonymously at 13:50, Mon 14 February 2022

Sent to National Highways less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 3310481.

The Bus Stop sign indicating where the bus should stop has rusted at the turning to Maiden Newton/Askerswell and fallen down into the grass verge. This stop is called Vinney Cross on the Bus Timetable and it is my stop and the other day the bus driver drove right past it so my husband had to walk down the busy A35 with no pedestrian footpath. Very dangerous. This is the main A35 Route from Axminster to Weymouth for the X51 First Bus service and is a busy service and this is a busy fast road. The Bus Stop sign needs replacing urgently.

  • I totally agree. May 24th bus driver didn’t know where the stop was and was driving quickly along this road. We rang the bell 3 times. He claimed he didn’t hear us. We too had to walk back along a very dangerous road to the turning. When we told him that he hadn’t stopped. His reply was “ Well what do you expect me to do” Impolite and a very dangerous experience. We are on holiday here and are not leaving with a good impression of the service.
