Actually you're right - loading the page on my phone wouldn't allow

It looks as if bus driver has cut the corner well after the give way

branch and sign behind fence in attached Google street view to assist
in locating incident.

More importantly Google Street view captures ex-Invercargill Birney
#15 in the background.
