Opposite this non-stop, however, IS a pole and flag set ...
Yes, the flag could be replaced with "opposite side of road" added.
A timetable could not be posted opposite the pub because it was a "virtual stop"
i.e. no pole or frame! It is not clear why a pole could not be installed - even if it were at the back of the "parking by convention" verge. Even better, Google Streetview shows an ideal (black) pole in just the right place.
It is not possible to have timetables for both directions in the frame on the one pole.
Readers are invited to follow the logic of this reply; which clearly comes from a PTE minion who has never been to Ringinglow and spends the day peering at a computer database.
Even if the computer won't PRINT two timetables for the same indexed pole, it could, surely, be persuaded to print one for the opposite direction for heinously "wrong" installation. If Deep Throat resists the programer, then fbb has the answer.
There is a lovely walk from Fulwood (service 120 and 83a) to Ringinglow and on via Whirlow (service 81) to Millhouses (service 97 and 98) all part of Sheffield's extensive and gorgeous "Round Walk" - with the benefit of a recuperative "jar" at the Norfolk Arms!!
In Thames Ditton?
In this case, fbb can only reproduce the press article with a sense of frustration because it contains insufficient information to allow 100% reliable verification.
A series of roundabouts were built at the busy (for the 1930s) intersection, then called "traffic islands". The unfamiliar nature of the double roundabout caused it to be called the "silly islands", which became locally accepted as its name, but this soon evolved into the "Scilly Isles", copying the name of the islands to the west of Cornwall. This name, although intended to be disapproving, thus became an official name, visible on all approaches to the junction and the highest definition maps.
Which makes this article slightly suspicious.
But is it?
Technically, Elmbridge Council is right, presumably making their decision on the basis of a computer database. On Mondays to Fridays at approximately 1205 a service 513 DOES have the ability to stop at the new shelter, despite the opinions of local residents.
Here it is confirmed by Traveline.
