Temporary changes to city centre routes/stops

From Monday 29th February 2016, city centre road and building works will affect routes and stopping places for buses and create traffic diversions.

Rougier Street

Work on the adjacent building will necessitate the temporary closure of westbound bus stops.

The long bus shelter will be demolished and scaffolding erected.

Travellers towards Bishopthorpe should use the York Station stop.

After approx. two weeks, temporary stops will be put in place, to be succeeded by a splendid new bus shelter (features unspecified) a little later.


Ouse Bridge

Work on the pavement will result in the temporary restriction of the bridge to one-way (westbound) traffic only and hence the temporary closure of the Lower Ousegate stops for about two weeks.

Bishopthorpe passengers should use the Stonebow stop.

(Car drivers will also, of course, be affected and the diversions are likely to cause congestion on the other two city centre bridges and adjacent roads.)

The work is expected to last about two weeks.
