REGULAR users of a bus stop in Potters Bar can now rest easy as they wait for their transport to arrive.

A new bench has been installed at a stop in Cranborne Road, at the junction with Mutton Lane, giving waiting passengers a place to sit for the first time.

It was installed by Hertfordshire Highways, after Hertsmere borough councillor Peter Knell, who represents the Furzefield ward, got in touch and asked for something to be done about the lack of seating.

"I had noticed over a period of many weeks people who were waiting for the bus had to either sit on people's private walls, or stand until the bus arrived and some elderly people were using their walking sticks for support," Cllr Knell said.
