Oooops: Workmen write Bup Stop instead of Bus Stop in Bristol

Comments (1)

Bungling workmen were left red-faced after painting 'Bup Stop' in the road to mark out a new bus stop.

Confused bus drivers are being forced to look twice after the dozy Bristol City Council workers misspelt the sign on the road surface in large yellow lettering.

The gaffe, which uses the stencilled letter P instead of an S, appeared last week as part of road repairs in the centre of the city.

Bristol City Council was yesterday (Mon) unavailable for comment about the error involving the bus stop markings.

But Peter Mann, the service director for transport, said: "It is important that we carry out these improvements as soon as possible to maintain road safety for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians."

    It could have been worse, it might have read PUB STOP, a bit like the pub stops proposed on the motorways!
