Lost and Found Termini - Clifton Street

Enivro Demonstrator SN59AWX loads at the new Line 14 stop on Clifton Street
Today was the first day of the new Town Centre arrangements with buses using Clifton Street for the first time since 1996.  Lines 3, 4, 5, 7, 11, 14, 15 and 16 all follow the new route. Interestingly this means that all bus services now serve Talbot Square in at least one direction - including Line 1 on the Promenade.
Trident 329 turns left onto Abingdon Street - Clifton Street is now one way eastbound; Abingdon St one way northbound and the road to the left of the camera is now closed.
Solo 242 loads for Cleveleys on Line 7

Solo 252 on Line 5

The former era on Clifton Street saw service 26 terminate outside the now demolished Yates building operating eastbound while the 5 and later 6 operated westbound on journeys from Grange Park to Halfway House (5) or Mereside (6).
Swift 572 awaits departure time in this February 1986 evening view on service 26 - the replacement for the Marton tram route.
