NCT 636, Upper Parliament St Nottingham, 29-07-2017
Lime Line 58 has always been a high profile route, being the main servcie to Arnold and being involved in spats of competition with the Calverton Connection. As such it was at one stage equipped with articulated Scanias, but given their length and the need to cram stops in post tram these became unviable and the route reverted to deckers. It was an obvious one to get a batch Enviro 400s, but it is not on the list to get new buses this time round, with NCT apparently feeling that the 25 to Arnold is more deserving of low emission buses. Mansfield Rd always looks busier than Westdale Lane to me!
Passengers on this route used to have the pleasant aspect of the Old Market Square to look at while waiting on Long Row for their bus - now they're on a pavement in an urban canyon. Such is progress.
