Delaine Bus stop close to the Vine Street/London Road junction is a dangerous stop to wait at.

Reported via desktop in the Seating issue category anonymously at 21:57, Mon 20 March 2023

Sent to Lincolnshire County Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 452025.

After recent changes to this bus route, commuters are left to stand on what is a narrow footpath, and an uneven one at that just a foot away from a busy road. There is nowhere to place shopping safely away from the elements, no seating for the elderly, and a dangerous area to cross the roads, These issues have existed for many months now. The timetable also sits around six foot in the air, meaning people cannot see it without leading backwards to look up. Another issue with the stop is that bus users are blocking the pavement which is used by pedestrians. Our local MP is aware of the issues and has pressed for answers. Lets not wait until someone is knocked over or worse for changes.
