The ongoing battle to restore essential links to local services annexed at the time of the West Walsall/Wolverhampton Bus Review last summer by the re-routing of the 41 Walsall to Willenhall service rumbles on reports Liberal Democrat councillor Ian Shires.
The issues around the reliability of this service appear to have improved but there still remains the lack of a link to essential services for residents living along the Coppice Lane/Lucknow Road/Ashmore Lake Rd corridor.
The trade off offered by NXWM to restore the link between the Wood Lane area and Willenhall is also still an issue. NXWM say that to accommodate links to the Wood Lane area they would have to stop the service going through The Beacon Estate, Allens Rough and along the Essington Road.
“Clearly NXWM are trying to set one group of passengers against another” said Ian. “We are still convinced that the issue can be resolved and are asking for further discussions with NXWM, Centro and Walsall Council” concluded Ian.
