“Please help me persuade City of Edinburgh Council to reinstate the oldest bus shelter in Edinburgh” – Mary Gordon

Description

Mary Gordon

This morning I walked along the Shore and discovered that the wooden bus shelter that was on the shore has gone. As it was the oldest bus shelter in Edinburgh can I find out who gave permission for this historic structre to be destroyed?

    Hello

    I believe that the shelter you are talking about is the one that is to be removed as part of South Shore improvements. The stop is being moved to make it easier for passengers to access the buses. Sadly, it appears that the shelter will not be reinstated.
