LETTER: Bus changes

I am disappointed that Worthing Borough Council has revived their scheme for moving the Stagecoach bus depot from Library Place to Decoy Farm.

The present location is adjacent to the hub of most Worthing bus routes.

As Stagecoach buses do not serve Decoy Farm, who is to pay for their empty mileage to and from Decoy Farm?

As for buses on South Street, this is the principle access point for bus passengers to Worthing’s shops.

The present quantity of shops in the town centre requires bus loads of shoppers to keep them profitable, as happens in Brighton.

West Sussex County Council could help by remodelling South Street so that moving buses are not obstructed by buses standing at stops.

Likewise, it would be helpful if any alteration would allow buses travelling in opposite directions to pass without one or the other having to pull over.
