If my eyesight is correct , there only appear to be the new green signs in Bromsgrove bus station and in Droitwich. I have not ventured further south than Droitwich or indeed past the top of Golden Cross Lane in Marlbrook on the "Saltroad" though. 8-)
Got this 1 at Foregate Street Station

Without wishing to be nit-picking, the new bus stops make no mention of other services passing the location. For example the North bound Foregate Street stop, depicted above, opposite the Railway Station is served by First 36 & 37 City services, Diamond 303 and Kev's 355 in addition to Salt Road 144. I realise that the bus stop has, or at least had, a departures timetable but, correct me if I'm wrong, didn't the old Worcs CC installed stop sign list all the service numbers at that point?

As it was a pedestrianised area, the local authority said there should be someone walking in front of the vehicle whenever it was moved.

I see Adam, that you have mentioned on the wmbusphotos site that two "additional" vehicles will be painted into Salt Road livery, later in the year.

- Can you tell us any more please, and could you tell us if they will definitely be single-deckers ? ;)

One of the Mercedes Citaros due later in the year is going to be in Salt Road spec as a spare. However, yesterday I was in ear-shot of the boss while he was giving an interview at the Bromsgrove launch event and he said two of them were to be done. I later asked if they are Euro-6 and he replied that we will have to get them converted.
