First Cymru services return to Maesteg Bus Station

First Cymru Buses Limited has confirmed that its services are running out of Maesteg bus station once more after Bridgend County Borough Council took action to prevent unauthorised vehicles from entering bus bay areas.

The company had temporarily removed its services due to safety concerns over cars and other vehicles entering the bus areas to park, undertake manoeuvres or to load and unload goods.

To address these important safety concerns, Bridgend County Borough Council has introduced a new traffic order at the station along with new double-yellow lines which gives the authority powers to carry out civil enforcement against drivers who break the new rules.

The traffic order was introduced shortly after First Cymru reported that a car had backed into one of their buses. It follows numerous unsuccessful attempts to deter drivers from entering the bus bay area as well as reminders that free car parking remains available at Llynfi Street.

Enforcement officers will be monitoring the situation closely, and will issue unauthorised vehicles entering Maesteg bus station with fixed penalty notices.
