First changes: Focus on General Hospital to Totton

First have new timetables on most routes from 30th June. Today we look at the 10 between General Hospital and Totton.

In the last post we saw how the 10 is being rerouted between town and the General. It's route is also changing between the General and Shirley. From 30th July, it will approach the hospital along Dale Road, turning right into Tremona Road and then left into Coxford Road, which it will follow all the way to Maybush Corner, before turning left to lead in to Shirley. The route in Totton also changes. Here's how it currently runs there:

Instead of turning round at Totton College, the 10 will run a loop, out along Water Lane and then in along Ringwood Road. Here's the full section from the General to Totton from First's new network map:

The biggest change though is in the timetable:

There's already no Sunday service. From 30th June, there will be no Saturday service either. The only positive is that the last bus on weekdays from the General Hospital towards Totton will be almost 90 minutes later than it currently is.

If you need to travel between Totton and the General on Saturdays or Sundays, you will need to catch Bluestar 6, 8, 11 or 12 to Central Station and then change to First 3.

See the new 10 timetable here and details of all of the changes to First services from 30th June here.
