10 May (Part 1) - Running repairs

Repairs RepairsIn the Broadway there are places without kerbstones which is supposed to indicate that bus wheels and toes can occupy the same space, but preferably not at the same time.

In Arnsberg Way at the entrance to the bus terminus (Geddes Place) and Clock Tower stops there is a great big kerb which is inevitably mounted by a bus from time to time, and equally inevitably the kerb stone doesn’t stay in place for very long. This is at least the second time it has been replaced. First time around I arrived too late but yesterday I was luckier.

Eventually someone will come up with a better idea. Who decides whether a kerb is justified or not and does this one really have to be so high?
