Summer Substitution in Pwllheli

Arriva Bus Services have returned to normal along the Porthmadog Pwllheli Corridor following the introduction of a new Open Top Double Decker at the Company’s Pwllheli Outstation following the devastating fire early on Saturday Morning.

As Stated in the previous Post Disruption in Pwllheli as Fire Strikes Depot, Services were disrupted in the town following a fire which completely destroyed Rhyl Depot based Alexander ALX400 T305FGN and caused substantial damage to Bangor based  VDL SB120CS Wright Cadet CX04AYC.

It is understood by Bws Cymru Blog that this incident is being treated as an arson attack against the bus, with a joint investigation being set up by North Wales Fire and Rescue Service alongside the North Wales Police.

Police are currently looking for any witnesses who saw anyone acting suspiciously around the Arriva Outstation at the Glandon Filling Station in Pwllheli between 01:30 and 02:30 on Saturday Morning (16th July 2016) to contact PC100 Carwyn Tomos at Pwllheli Police Station on 101, or to Call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111

Despite the continued investigation, and with half of the Outstation now fenced off for Police and Fire Investigation, Bus Services have continued with Rhyl Depot sending S288JUA to Pwllheli for operation on the newly introduced 3T Service which links Pwllheli with the Harbour Town of Porthmadog.

    Excellent. A nice little “f*** you” message to the scumbag(s) who set the other buses on fire.

    Hope they’re beefing up security though.
