  • Why is the bus stop on the High Street in Higham still closed? It is unsightly and not necessary. When will these awful barriers be removed?

  • The barriers all blew over in the night! Fortunately someone has moved them off the road. They are now causing an issue to safety of road users. When will they be removed and the bus stop reinstated?

  • Putting them back up hasn’t resolved the issues of the unsightly now damaged barriers that are no longer required as social distancing has stopped. Please can you remove them as the crashing when they are blown down the high street is noisy and they are a danger to the public both on foot and in cars.
