A misspelled road sign caught the attention of commuters in Maidenhead at the weekend.
Eyebrows were raised by people trying to catch the bus from St Mark's Crescent after a resurfaced part of the road was repainted.
The road markings were changed to read 'BOS STOP'.
It is not yet certain who is responsible for the error.
A spokesman for the Royal Borough said: "The utility firm that made this error has been notified and asked to rectify."
UPDATE, Tuesday, May 16, 4.25pm:
Gas company Cadent, which was working on the road, has released the following statement: "We have been carrying out essential gas mains replacement work in St Mark’s Crescent to ensure people in the area keep on enjoying safe and reliable gas supplies for cooking and heating.
"As part of the work we needed to dig an excavation in the road.
"Once we had completed our work in this section of the road we arranged for a subcontractor to carry out reinstatement and resurfacing work that was required. This included repainting of the street markings.
"We expect our subcontractors to deliver this work to the same or better standard of what was there previously.
"It was brought to our attention that part of the repainted street markings had been done incorrectly and this has now been corrected. We are sorry for any confusion this may have caused."
