Woolston Residents’ Association chairwoman Jackie Simons and Woolston resident and affected bus user Paul McMahon presented a petition of more than 1200 signatures on Thursday. ECan chief executive Bill Bayfield will investigate the issues raised. It is after ECan planned to cut bus route 535 and reroute the 145 Westmorland service into the central city meaning it would no longer travel to Eastgate Mall. Initially, this meant no bus service would run through Bromley. ECan has since come back with a shopper service, the 155, which will be introduced in the south-east of the city, running between Lyttelton and Eastgate via Ferrymead. The 155 is planned to replace the 535 and 145 Westmorland service running into Eastgate. •Turn to page 5 BLINDS...Cleaned, Repaired & Restored...
