People in Brotton regularly tell me they need a bus service to the retail park in Skelton-in-Cleveland. I met Phil Smith, our area chief from Arriva North East to discuss the problem and hand over a petition signed by hundreds of local residents. I’m really pleased to confirm Phil has committed to making this part of their periodic review of their service pattern, which will take place at the beginning of next year – hopefully we will see progress soon!
Phil and I also discussed the problem of the full service running from Huntcliff School, Saltburn-by-the-Sea back up to Skelton, and he set out some of the steps Arriva are taking.
