Southampton bus round-up

The Bishopstoke roadworks originally programmed to start on 10 August are now expected to start on 24 August, and should last for about 4 months. During this time, Bluestar 2 will not be able to serve Spring Lane, Hamilton Road or Sedgewick Road. Instead, it will run via Church Road and Stoke Park Road. The bus stops on Spring Lane and Sedgewick Road will be closed.

First revamp their Fareham and Gosport routes on 30th August. For us that means the 78 and 79 disappear to be replaced by an increased frequency on the 80, which will be rerouted to run via Woolston instead of Bitterne. There will also be a new timetable on the 72.

Do The Docks for free on 30th August.

Bank holiday 31st August: Sunday service on Bluestar & Unilink.

The new X5 Southampton-Ringwood operated by Dorset Sprinter (Travel Guest) starts on 7th September. Connections to Bournemouth on service X55 from Ringwood.

Timetable changes to Unilink U1 and U6 on 27th September.
