A BUS stop which has not seen an actual bus stop for some considerable time continues to remain abandoned and forlorn, Cardigan town councillors have been told.

County councillor Elaine Evans reported that the shelter opposite the Ridgeway housing estate was still cordoned off – and there was no indication when it would be brought back into use.

“Ceredigion County Council are currently reviewing and assessing the bus shelters throughout Ceredigion,” she told colleagues.

“There is no timescale on this process, but they assured me that they will assess this shelter as soon as reasonably possible. I will continue to monitor this issue.”

At the same meeting she revealed council officers had approached a Cardigan landlord due to a house being deemed unfit to live in due to excessive damp, and she was currently assisting the tenant with their housing application.

“A disabled tenant who would like to have a driveway put on his front garden enabling him to retain his independence has asked for my support,” she added.

“People park in front of his house which creates problems for him to access his own adapted vehicle.

“I am in contact with Ceredigion County Council to see if social services or some other department can help him with this.”

In other town news she reported the footpath from Drawbridge up to the Chapel of Rest had been cleared once again, “but the inclement weather causes the path to return to an unsafe surface very quickly”.

And Cllr Evans also disclosed that the presence of Cardigan Fair in November had caused parking issues outside Ysgol Gynradd Aberteifi.

“A bus had to park on the opposite side of the road from the bus stop because cars had parked on the stop,” she said.

“I’ve contacted Clic Ceredigion, the county council’s customer service centre, about getting the traffic warden up there during Fair week at the school’s closing time in an attempt to control the problem.”
