It has been brought to the attention of WSPTU members by bus commuters, local people and bus operators, that the bus transitway on the M2 into the city is missing about 5klms of clearway. This means that the bus has to merge into the traffic created by the cars. This is particularly a problem during peak hour when the traffic is moving very slowly.
One suggestion proposed is that, in the places where there is no bus transitway, the breakdown lane be converted to a multipurpose lane which is used as a bus transitway during the peak hours. In the other times it could remain as a breakdown lane. This would improve the service of the bus transitway from the North West into the city.
