Was ours the only bus that got stranded in Kenilworth yesterday, or did Stagecoach fail to tell all of their drivers about the roadworks?...
Having, maybe up to a month ago, spotted several signs announcing the New Street road works in Kenilworth I was surprised to find our bus driver taking the normal term-time U1 route through the town. Lo and behold, when we came to New Street, it was indeed full of diggers and utterly impassable to buses. Thence followed a slow and awkward reversing process across the busy crossroads and a reversion to the X17 route. A delay of at leat 10 minutes.
Now, I found this experience amusing rather than irritating as I don't have to be at work at any specific time in the mornings, but how can Stagecoach have failed to notify their drivers of a complete change to their regular route?! Surely they must have been told about this, and if not, the signs have been so obvious that I've noticed them despite that I spend most of my time on the bus reading!
