There's an interesting article today on the "Route One" online magazine, about the Salt Road initiative, and it answers some of our questions about the Euro 6 upgrade work.

(Sorry I cannot provide a link).

If my eyesight is correct , there only appear to be the new green signs in Bromsgrove bus station and in Droitwich. I have not ventured further south than Droitwich or indeed past the top of Golden Cross Lane in Marlbrook on the "Saltroad" though. 8-)

Only a few have been done so far. The guy who attends to bus stops only does that job part-time and he is also helping to run the 4 launch events, so the stops won't be done over night as there are over 100 of them. I believe he's up his ladder again on Thursday.

No, much the same as the 142/3 from the 1990s between the bus station and Catshill, so that’s Bromsgrove Bus Station, Market Street, Church Street, Broad Street (Sidemoor), Stourbridge Road, Meadow Road (Catshill). At Wildnoor Lane it then dissapears on to the housing estate in a loop to turn round for the return journey.
