A LIFELINE transport service could be returned to an area of Weston after hundreds of residents signed a petition against the loss of their buses.

A LIFELINE transport service could be returned to an area of Weston after hundreds of residents signed a petition against the loss of their buses.

Following the collapse of company ACL Travel earlier this year, 226 signatures people asked that the lost route from Corondale Road and Martindale Road in Milton be restored.

The service, which ran to the town centre, was one of many casualties after the bus firm went bust.

A petition from Milton residents was presented to North Somerset's full council meeting in October and now the route could operate once again.

The unitary authority says bus companies across the district have been asked to tender for the service and residents are due to be told a decision in the new year.

The latest news follows months of disruption on the area's bus routes.

After ACL Travel went bust in September North Somerset Council awarded contracts to other firms to replace the routes covered by the collapsed company, but some residents were still left with no service.

A report on the latest developments is due to be presented to the authority's full council on Tuesday.
