Rerouting of Bus No 74

Via email from a Ponteland Online visitor.

I would like to publicise the rerouting of Bus No 74, which from 28th October is going to revert to its original route along the upper part of Eastern Way and then via Edge Hill back onto Callerton lane, from where it proceeds to Newcastle through Westerhope.

This Go Ahead service, which goes to Newcastle at about 10, 12, 14 and 16h, will once again provide a useful link for a part of Darras Hall which is not served by Stagecoach.
It is to be hoped that the efforts of a determined octogenarian to get this change in route will now be rewarded by potential passengers finding many opportunities to use the service.
