Victory for Haltwhistle bus passengers
Last updated at 10:43, Tuesday, 22 January 2013
BUS passengers are celebrating after winning a two-year campaign to ensure a popular route in South Tynedale caters for elderly residents.
Since 2010, the 185 service has not included Haltwhistle’s Park Road on its vital route between the town and Gilsland.
Now passengers have persuaded transport bosses to revert to the original timetable for the route, which is managed by Cumbria County Council, and operated by Newcastleton-based Telford’s Coaches Ltd.
The 185 service is popular with shoppers and people who need to access services in Haltwhistle.

PLANS for a £1.5 million leisure pool complex featuring a wave machine and water slide were unveiled for Prudhoe.
To be built on land known as the Sui, the complex was to feature a cafe and fitness suite, plus a replacement bowling green for the one which was to be lost at Oakfield Park due to the development of a new Co-op store.
There were also hopes that a sports hall, incorporating facilities for five-a-side football, indoor tennis and badminton, could be added in the future.
