News: Council paints “bup” at bus stop

Repair will need to be repaired


Bup Stop

YOU WAIT for one bup, and then three all come at once.

Actually, you’d be waiting a long time for a bup especially since the hapless council worker who painted the unfamiliar word on the road meant to write “bus”.

His mistake was laid bare for all to see in the Old Market area of Bristol city centre. The freshly painted “bup stop” is part of a package of repairs to the road surface.

A council spokesman was unavailable for comment.
