Diversions in Hythe & Bishopstoke / New timetables & ticket restrictions on Unilink

The long awaited Bishopstoke diversion to Bluestar 2 and F gets underway tomorrow. 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.

Also starting tomorrow are some road closures in Hythe that mean diversions on Bluestar 8, 9, H1, H2 and H3. Bluestar 8 & 9 will not be able to serve the Ferry Yard, New Road or South Street. Buses will pick up and drop off instead at Jones Lane/Brinton Lane, running out of Hythe via West Street. Baby Bluestar H1, H2 & H3 will use the Ferry Yard as normal but will run in and out of Hythe via South Street.

Unilink are no longer accepting Bluestar's day and week tickets. 30-day and 90-day Bluestar Freedom tickets can however still be used on Unilink.

There are also new timetables on Unilink taking effect today. More buses on U1 now run into Eastleigh. U6 now runs later in the evenings.
