RESIDENTS in the west of Warrington will get the chance to have their say on changes to the bus network in Chapelford, Great Sankey and Penketh.

A special public roadshow will take place on Thursday, August 2 from 2pm until 6pm at Meeting Lane Leisure Centre.

The bus routes under consideration are the 13, 14, 15 and 32A which cover Chapelford, Great Sankey and Penketh.

Managing director at Warrington's Own Buses Ben Wakerley said: “We want to hear from customers who travel in and around the west of the borough as we look to revamp this section of our network.

“We want to know what we should carry on doing, stop doing or start doing.

“No decisions have been made on route improvements, which is why it’s important we hear from our passengers and potential bus users to make sure any changes made are in our passengers’ interests.

“I think it’s equally important we reach out to residents who don’t use the bus network.

"I want to find out how we can support them to leave their cars in the garage more often and travel using public transport, to help alleviate traffic and contribute to a greener, cleaner borough.

“I want to reassure passengers that the primary focus of this consultation is not to look at cancelling routes, but to find ways we can better connect the west of the town with the rest of the borough.

“We look forward to speaking to residents at the event.”

No registration for the event is necessary.
