LETTER: Timeless saga of the signs
For many months now, Stagecoach’s Eastbourne bus passengers have been looking in vain at the rash of new signs, erected at no little cost at most of the town’s bus stops, which are intended to let bus users know how many minutes they must wait before the arrival of the next few buses along the route. Similar signs at bus stops in the town used by the Brighton & Hove buses have been working satisfactorily for years. I say looking in vain because in the many months since the new signs were erected, the only message they have ever shown was ‘This sign is under test’.
