Changes to Bus Stopping Locations in the Town Centre From 11 November 2018
71 days ago
On Sunday 11 November during the Remembrance Sunday Parade, the promenade will close. The promenade will not reopen on Sunday but remain closed as works on Talbot Road will extend towards the seafront on Monday 12 November. Talbot Road will remain closed between Talbot Square and Topping Street but the junction at Wilko will remain open with footpath works commencing around the roundabout (Wilko).
This means some of our services will be changing where they stop in the town centre from the start of service on Sunday 11 November. Between 10:00 and 13:00 on Sunday 11 November there will be an additional diversion to northbound services 5, 6, 7, 11 and 17 due to us having no access to Church Street from the promenade.
