Photos: Closure of Mill Road bridge
« on: July 06, 2019, 12:00:37 AM »
I visited the Mill Road area of Cambridge on Friday 5 July 2019 and photographed the two shuttle mini-buses and normal buses on service 2 diversion.

Good to see Stagecoach providing Welsh-language services for the denizens of Mill Road.  ;D

Mill Road, Cambridge, is a diverse ‘community of communities’!
TCD813? The reg of a Southdown Motor Services, Northern Counties bodied, Leyland Titan PD3/4 FH39/30F (popularly dubbed 'Queen Mary') from the late 50s.
There's all 'manor' of stuff on my Twitter A/c.

Noteworthy is that the mini-buses are to be retained after the Mill Road Railway Bridge reopens. Stagecoach East plan to experiment with using them in innovative ways for service provision.

Can't wait!  It will be nice to see something new after many years of it mainly being cutbacks (recently now even on the Guideway).

Just can't think where they're going to go, though!  Villages to P&R (maybe on the busway)?  One of the new estates?  Link to one of the more rural science / research parks?

I believe th mini buses will be used for northstow also one would be fine for the 25 service.
Kind regards
