Following on from recent posts about the SGN works in Stockbridge, SGN tells NTBCC:
In relation to what will happen with the buses when we move to the next phase of our works in Stockbridge. The bridge will reopen to two way traffic on Monday morning and Raeburn Place will open to citybound traffic in the afternoon.
The switch in bus diversions will not happen until start of service Tuesday morning so that there is no confusion as to whether buses are on diversion or not.
I have attached a map showing the diversion routes that will be followed by buses from start of service on Tuesday 11 February. A copy of this map will go up in the bus stops affected from the start of next week. You are welcome to distribute this map to help spread the word’.
In simple terms all citybound buses on routes 24, 29, 36 and 41 will return to normal route while all buses in the opposite direction will stay on their current diversion. The diverted 36 will continue to serve the temporary stop on George Street eastbound to enable passengers on 24, 29 and 42 to get to Howe Street.
Note that the road is expected to open sometime on Monday and due to the lack of a specific time the bus company have decided that it is easiest if they wait until Tuesday to make the switch to routes.
