First Scunthorpe Bus Lane Proposed

North Lincolnshire Council are proposing Scunthorpe's 1st ever bus lane, down Oswald Road. It would cost £30,000 with work starting in the spring if it goes ahead. The bus lane would run between Mary Street and Station Road and be in operation between 3.30 and 6.30 Monday to Saturdays, requiring 18 parking spaces to be put out of bounds. The area is cited as a traffic bottleneck, something I have witnessed a couple of times.

Whether a bus lane is the answer though is a different matter, and those commenting on the Scunthorpe Telegraph article dont seem to think it is.
