Why weren't they sold to recoup some of the money?

Could easily sell them to other countries. Budapest uses the same kind of vehicle as public transportation to get from the airport to the city

They drive on the wrong side of the road, plus they have been sold apparently.

Correct!

Why then, do you let the very next poster get away with it?

If my memory serves me correctly they were brought in around the time London were scrapping them.

The chaos that ensued in town no doubt helped further decay and decline of the city centre

So they haven't gone there to die. They have been sold. Still it's another chance for WOL to take the p!ss. Such a shame they don't use their investigative journalism on more difficult and important subjects like taking the Council and WAG to task.
On this occasion we have not helped ourselves by giving the b@stards the material to work with.

The concept of the bendy buses was fine. The idea of a bus service linking hospital to hospital was a good idea. You can certainly quibble with the millions spent changing the roads to suit them when double deckers would have done the job just as well.

The nonsense about the Kingsway being just that was absurd though. There was nothing wrong with the road layout there. Most people learn to look both ways before crossing the road when they're kids.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

The private number plates on them were probably worth more than the buses!
The whole scheme was doomed to failure from the start.But let's not rake up the whys and wherefores, it's been done, it failed, but I think a lot of folk knew it would.

The problem with the bendy bus wasn't the road system it was that they were so uneconomic to run. One of the pilots tod me years before they were removed they only did 2 miles to the gallon.

That won’t load for me - WOL is so full of advert crap these days I don’t even bother on my old phone.

Presumably it’s talking about them being stashed in an old yard just rotting away and all smashed up by vandals? The driver of one of the new match buses being put on was telling me about them a couple of months back. What a waste, and that’s probably less than the half of it when you count how much the road restructuring cost, the resulting loss of businesses along the Kingsway, especially up by the Dragon, and the loss of life because the road system was so unintuitive. Someone should be held to account for such a misuse of public funds.

Apparently they were a good age when we bought them, so can’t imagine anyone would want them anyway.

It cost 10 million to change the road network to accommodate them. Now it’s costing 10 million to change them back again.
Very sad to see money flushed away like this.

Rumour has it that Huw Jenkins was on the planning committee.
