Do you use the number 14 Preston City Centre to Brookfield bus?

Upset by the re-routing of the service due to delayed road repairs? How many times have you used the number 14 in the past month? How has it affected your journey?

Preston Bus are asking for your comments by completing a short survey online.

They are interested in your views and say all responses will be read and could affect how the 14, and other services, operate in the future.

The long running road closure of Watling Street Road at Brookfield was due to a sewer collapse back in August. It affected residents and services as buses, including the 88A, were diverted.

The number 14 service was subject to a large diversion taking it down Ribbleton Lane to reduce number of buses operating around Westfield Drive Estate. Some school services were also being diverted.

Early comments say the diversions led to longer journeys and full buses. Preston Bus reply that they agree the diversion wasn’t ideal, but unfortunately they rarely have a choice when it comes to road closures.

To have your say go to the Preston Bus survey here.
