Raising bus reversing issues with Metro

SAFETY campaigners are to write to Metro over concerns that school buses are not complying with instructions regarding reversing into the Todmorden bus depot at Millwood.

Todmorden Accident Prevention Council had been assured by Metro and service operator First that the buses were to use the turning circle at Hebden Bridge to turn their vehciles in order to access the garage back at Todmorden.

Instead they were reversing into Horsfall Street at Lobb Mill and council members said they considered the practice dangerous as vehicles had to almost block the main Halifax Road to execute the manoeuvre.
