If its anywhere near to the stupid crossing near Bargate then its no wonder there was an accident! If so it, won't be the last either.

When are we going to get a purpose bult bus station so that the roads around the parks are clear of buses? The area around Hanover Buildings, Vincents Walk and Bargate were never designed for that volume of bus traffic. You would not put five bits of railway station around city streets, so why this nonsense? We need one central point where we get our buses.
