The bus stops on Consett Road are in the wrong place. They needs to be east of the Alwinton Gardens junction in both directions, nearer a larger number of residents and to Emmanuel School, and where there’s plenty of land to accommodate them. The current bus stop positions were determined when this whole side of Lobley Hill was undeveloped, at there was a farm and a few houses at the west end of Consett Road! Repositioning the bus stops will allow buses that turn into Alwinton Gardens to stop on Consett Road. Buses come up Knightside Gardens and Malvern Gardens to turn here, and in theory buses could come directly up Lobley Hill Road. Local bus routes could be more flexibly designed if the stops were moved. Perhaps extra bus stops for each direction could be placed near the entrance of Ravensworth estate, as there is a long run to the next stops to the west. Remember that bus stops are owned by local authorities, not by bus companies.
