Welshpool’s one-way system has come under the microscope once again after video showing a bus going the wrong way was posted on Facebook.

The footage shows the bus coming the wrong way down Church Street yesterday and then taking a right into oncoming traffic outside the former Spar.

It was captured by Julia Cork who owns the Sun Kissed Tanning Salon opposite, and she told us last night that it was far from being a one-off.

“It's horrendous,” she said. “I see vehicles driving down there the wrong way at least once a day. I can't understand how there hasn't been a major accident. The turning by the old Spar shop is also so dangerous with no crossing for pedestrians.”

The one-way system has caused its fair share of controversy since it was introduced five years ago. More tweaking is expected as incidents like this continue to highlight the problems that motorists not familiar with it are facing.
