Bus passengers in Chorley are benefiting from new bus shelters as part of a refurbishment programme.

Chorley Council owns 80 of the borough’s bus shelters and has encountered problems ranging from damaged frames, rust and decaying paint to some completely unusable for passengers.

The work, which will see all the 80 dark green shelters spruced up, will be completed in the next few weeks, with each one getting a bin installed too.

New shelters have been installed outside Eldon House, Brooke Street, A6 Whittle-le-Woods close to Doorway to Value, two on Blackburn Road, the A49 close to Papa Luigi’s restaurant, Euxton Lane, opposite Buckshaw Avenue and Clayton Brook Road.

Councillor Terry Brown, who is overseeing the bus shelter refurbishment programme, said: “Over time the bus shelters the council owns have been neglected and in some cases left in a terrible state.”

Fizz-Goggling Bus Shelters.

While I might thank our kind friend and honourable Councillor Terry Brown for these truly tremendous and tantalising looking shelters or what Maurice Wigglethorpe-Throom, Fizz-Goggling Bus Shelters.

However, I personally, would have liked some with more sides on, you know when one gets older one feels the cold more. Might one also ask, could we have not had some hi-tech screens too, and speaker play music that show and say when the next bus is coming or due to arrive?

By the way, anyone living in the more rural boroughs can object to the new day-glo red in favour of the more traditional green. I know this for fact, as the council is obliged to consult with any council taxpayers affected, which it didn't! Personally I think they are an awful design and colour. Isn't it about time they spent our money fixing the pot-holes and de-cluttering the by-ways of totally unnecessary signage that blights our county?
