I WELCOME the news that the Bury bus station is to be revamped.

At the moment, pedestrians have to cross the busy bus lanes to get to the tram station and this has proved extremely hazardous in the past.

This will have to be the first thing they sort out.

And it has to be admitted that the bus station now looks quite sad and out-dated compared to the impressive new one at Bolton.

If this new revamp turns out to be half as successful, it will be a

good job well done.

One area where Bury scores over Bolton, is its market, and judging by the numbers travelling from Bolton to Bury on market days, an extension of the Metro-Link tram system to Bolton might

not be a bad idea.
