Update on 310 Bus

As you will be aware, the upcoming road closure due to the Network Rail bridge replacement works at Muirhead Rd will result in the temporary withdrawal of the 310 bus service from Broomhouse. Following representation from the community and elected members, SPT have agreed with the support of Transport Scotland and Wm Morrison Supermarkets plc to provide a solution to overcome the problems this will cause for Broomhouse residents, especially those who do not drive.

It has been arranged that starting on Monday 12th Feb a FREE shuttle bus service will operate 3 times a day between Broomhouse and Morrisons in Baillieston. It will run 4 days a week (Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturdays). The timetable is attached. Please share this with any Broomhouse residents you know who do not have access to social media and who would be likely to use the bus. It will also be displayed in the hall and Morrisons.

Please note that the service will initially run a 4-week trial to assess passenger usage. The service will be withdrawn should there be little/no demand during the trial 4 week period.

It will be a direct bus with no other routes or stops permitted.

Broomhouse Community Council wishes to express their thanks to the following parties for their interest, support and assistance with this;

Councillor Elaine Ballantyne
Wm Morrisons Supermarkets plc
SPT
Owen Campbell (Network Rail)
Transport Scotland

BCC

    I can’t see the usefulness of this service if it is two hourly. I wouldn’t use it and hang around for an hour and a half with all my shopping. Maybe it has been said before but here goes. The bridge should have been rebuilt before any builder was allowed to construct so many houses with no local shops. Bad council.
