Sadly, that excuse does not work for the 3/3a and 75/76.
Moving to the west we encounter the "Parson Cross" group of services.
BROWN) and Yew Lane (20 - RED) as destinations. But the Colley Road route (83/83a - LILAC), the last to be introduced, showed the generic "Parson Cross". This was OK until a tram replacement also ran to "Parson Cross", but a completely different place.
Parson Cross, shown on the 7/8, is undoubtedly WRONG; to be helpful, that should read "Wordsworth Avenue".
Then there is Southey Green!
DEEP RED) on the wrong roads!
fbb's version of a simplified map (better description than "underground style") is "work in progress" but here is the above area without proper "corners". It shows that it is possible to "do it proper good like".
And while we are looking at 52 and 95 ...
But fbb has left the most ghastly howler to the end.
The map is worse, far worse, in this area than fbb at first spotted.
PINKISH) and 24/25 (BLUE) as they move towards the city centre from Heeley (NOT the Heeley on the green line which should be "Heeley Green").
This shows a completely WRONG route for the 24/25; they run via Queens Road (on the yellow 51, should be on the dull blue 1/1a) and NOT with the 20.
The 97/98 (DEEP PURPLE) and the 75/76 (MUD) all enter the city via Highfield(no "S") and therefore should join the 20 (PINKISH) at that point.
There is no such place in Sheffield as HighfieldS - NO "s")
Out of courtesy, fbb contacted a senior manager at the PTE suggesting that the map should be withdrawn. He offered, out of desperation, to produce a correct version free of charge (T and C apply!).
The reply was, erm, "interesting"!!
Thank you for your email. The map was designed in house and was checked by all the partners for errors therefore I do not see any reason to withdraw it.
Thank you for your kind offer however we will be retaining the current version of this map.
A selection of mistakes has also now been sent. fbb awaits but does not expect a reply.
Back to sanity tomorrow.
