Closure of lower Westgate Street

3 weeks ago Tue 17th Sep 2019

The lower section of Westgate Street from its junction with Park Street to its junction with Wood Street will be closed to buses for approximately 8 weeks from Monday 23rd of September.  The road will be closed for emergency road works, however, access to our Travel Centre will still be possible by foot. 

In order to keep the number of bus stop changes and disruption to buses to a minimum, the council have proposed changes to direction of travel in the area.  The one-way system on Havelock Street will be reversed so that buses can travel south from Park Street to Wood Street.  In addition to this, Park Street will become a two-way system for buses between Westgate Street and Havelock Street.

During the closure, buses will divert as follows:
