Buses and Brinwell Road update

With all the tram news recently, we should not overlook developments at Brinwell Road and on the buses. Firstly, after some negotiation with our landlord, it has been decided to continue the lease on Brinwell Road depot and make changes to the configuration of the BusWorks' site. Nevertheless, the Brinwell Road depot has been tidied up and vehicles have been exchanged between the Blackpool and Weeton premises - transferring "non-runners" to Weeton to give greater flexibility at the Brinwell Road site.
The shunts have prompted a renewed effort to get some "quick-win" bus projects back on the road for 2012; Blackpool Routemaster 521, LUT Fleetline 97 and Ribble Bristol VRT 1997 - see our Facebook page for regular updates.
