Date to be Confirmed
The Welsh Heartlands Transport Festival will incorporate a special road run for buses to commemorate the 90th Anniversary of both the municipal transport departments of Caerphilly UDC and the Bedwas & Machen UDC.
This notable South Wales municipal transport landmark event will feature a road run for buses and ancillary vehicles such as recovery units will start in Bedwas and following a route which will feature a challenge to many of the older vehicles....the infamous Aberbargoed Hill which was followed by the former Bargoed to Markham route of the West Monmouthshire Board which started exactly 80 years ago !
The anniversary road run will commence on Saturday at 11.00 and will form a mouth watering opener for the Welsh Heartlands Transport Festival being staged at Blackwood showground on Sunday.
At the special request of CCBC councillors in both Caerphilly and Bedwas & Machen, owners are bing asked if they will be ready to carry members of the public on one of the three stages of the road run. Each passenger will be issued with a commemorative ticket clearly stating that they are carried at their own risk.
And the dates of this event...final comfirmation for the date are awaited from the CCBC due to restrictions on the use of the showground at Blackwood.
As vehicle numbers will be limited, especially for buses on the road run, if any reader has a bus and would like to take part, you can complete the following form to express your interest and this is a non binding application, formal invitations will be sent out early in 2007 and priority will be given to those who have already expressed their interest before other applications will be accedpted from around the UK.
