THE citizens of Salisbury already have a purpose-built coach station which handles National Express, tourist coaches and country buses only 50 seconds from the inner relief road. Why should we be asked, through our extremely high council taxes, to pay for another coach facility in Brown Street due to the incompetence of some Trowbridge bureaucrat who included our current coach station in the Maltings redevelopment?
WHY on earth could we not have secured the use of the bus station for tourist coach parking? Its ideal location, especially for the elderly, seems obvious.
Or another idea would have been to have provisioned space at our under-used park and ride sites and bus them in that way, keeping the coaches out of town?
