I READ with interest your article about the opening of the new bus lane in Old Houghton Road at Hartford, and that it would save four minutes off the journey.

Well I followed one of the buses recently and it turned into Houghton road and I obviously went round by the roundabout. Imagine my surprise when reaching the other end of the road to see the bus some distance from the junction, and I had to wait at the roundabout for several vehicles to go pass.

So where was the saving for the bus on that occasion?
