If the Transport authority has done its job properly then we will
expect to see Custom and Practice stops appear in NaPTAN opposite the
marked stops.

It may be that the stick on labels are temporary and that bus stop
poles will appear on the other side of the road in due course, at
which point the status of the stop in NaPTAN should change from CUS to 


Neither Traveline nor DfT have given an undertaking to provide updates 

of the data.  However I believe OSM has been able to take a refresh
