Actually you're half right. There is only the one bus lane but it causes plenty of disruption to both cars and buses for the reasons you stated. If they only sent a person down to see it surely they'd realise the 68 bus doesn't even use it. leaving four to seven number one buses an hour to use one whole lane! Plus they seem to have re-timed the Grange Road phase of the lights to let three vehicles through at a time! I've tried emailing various people but can't get any sense from them on this issue.

do you mean the '78'?

no, the 45

...if you press it, they will come.

Ooops you're right, the 78 it is. Very useful as is the 1 which I often use, but they are often stuck behind traffic backed up Grange Road because of the bus lane! Sounds implausable but one has to see it during a busy period to understand. This road has always been busy but since the CC zone and the introduction of the small bus lane it can really back up.
