One of the grumbles about getting around South Liverpool by bus has recently been the lack of options for anyone wanting to get to Springwood .
I've had a fair few elderly people raise this as they want to visit regularly to leave flowers or tidy graves but can't afford to go backwards and forwards by taxi.
The situation appeared to worsen a little while ago when the 801 bus, that made a few journeys from Liverpool South Parkway and other starting points to Springwood was cancelled.
I've done my fair share of writing in about this as have other people.
Anyway, there appears to be some good news. Early next month a couple of the circulars are being re routed so that there are buses to Springwood. It's not all good news as there are some timing changes as well and the re routing means there are some roads that now won't have the bus going along them.
But for those elderly people who worried about getting to and from Springwood, this has to be a bonus
