The Humberfield roundabout at the A63/A15 junction, near the Humber Bridge, will be closed each evening after 8pm, Monday-Friday, from Monday 19 August (except Monday 26 August) for around two weeks.

During this time, Service 155 travelling away from Hull will divert from Ferriby Road, Hessle, via Heads Lane, Boothferry Road, A164, Tranby Lane, Kemp Road and Swanland Hill to North Ferriby.  Service 155 heading towards Hull will do the diversion in reverse.


  • Cottingham - The Lawns Caravan Show

For the set up of The Lawns Caravan Show in Cottingham, buses will not serve the stop within the site of The Lawns from Wednesday 14 August.  Buses will divert via Harland Way and turn around at the roundabout near Skidby.  There may be additional traffic in the area during the event set up and during the event itself on Saturday 7 & Sunday 8 September.

After the event, The Lawns will be closing and buses will no longer stop inside the site but will still stop at the bus shelter outside on Northgate.


  • High Hunsley & North Newbald - road closures

The road between High Hunsley and North Newbald (Burgate) will be closed from Monday 5 August for around 12 days.

Passengers catching the bus in North Newbald during this time should catch it at the Green, and not at other stops in the village. 


  • Wheldrake & Thorganby - *now open*

From Monday 29 July until Friday 23 August the road between Thorganby and Wheldrake will be closed.  Service 18 buses will have to enter Wheldrake from the west and divert in a loop around the village, via North Lane and Dalton Hill and Main Street.  This mean buses will miss stops in Thorganby, plus the stops in Wheldrake on Main Street outside the Wenlock Arms, on Church Lane near the junction of Beck Lane, and on Church Lane near the junction of Derwent Park.  There will be extra stops served on Dalton Hill (around the corner from the Wenlock Arms), and you can also use the stop on Main Street between Walker Lane and North Lane.

North Yorkshire County Council will be putting on a shuttle bus from Thorganby to connect with some Service 18 buses at Skipwith. 

You can catch the shuttle bus in Thorganby (at the telephone box near the Jefferson Arms) at 7.11am and 9.35am, to connect with the Service 18 buses to York.  You can also catch the shuttle bus back to Thorganby at 4.31pm and 6.41pm in Skipwith (at the village green bus stop).  There is no extra cost for the shuttle bus.

STOP PRESS 08/08/19: The road has now reopened and buses have returned to their normal route.



  • Howden - road closures

Roadworks on Pinfold Street in Howden are now in their third stage, which started on Monday 12 August.  We have no details of how long these roadworks will last, so keep checking back on this page.

Between 0930 & 1530:

Buses travelling towards Goole will divert from Longs Corner (the roundabout at Hull Road/Thorpe Road/Boothferry Road) down Boothferry Road, Bellcross Lane, Hailgate & Treeton Road, then back onto Knedlington Road for its usual route.  All stops on Pinfold Street, Bridgegate and Hull Road are missed.  Buses will instead stop on Hailgate, just after it joins the road from Bellcross Lane, and by the junction of Hailgate and Charles Brigg Avenue.

Buses travelling towards Hull will divert from the corner of Knedlington Road and Treeton Avenue, using Treeton Avenue, right onto Hailgate then along the A614 Boothferry Road to Longs Corner (the roundabout at Hull Road/Thorpe Road/Boothferry Road) to join its normal route.  All stops on Pinfold Street, Bridgegate and Hull Road are missed.  Buses will instead stop near to the junction with Bellcross Lane on the A614 Boothferry Road.

Outside the hours 0930 & 1530:

During this time, buses in both directions will use Hull Road from Longs Corner, then divert along Hailgate and Treeton Road before rejoining the normal route at Knedlington Road.  Stops at the fish shop at the start of Flatgate, the Memorial stop and the stop at the PA building are all missed.


  • Hull - Cottingham Road stop

We are having to temporarily stop serving a bus stop down Cottingham Road due to a dangerous tree.  We have had several buses damaged by the tree in recent weeks, so for safety reasons the stop won't be served by buses until work can be done to make the tree safe.  The stop affected is on Cottingham Road, near Townend Court (just before the Chanterlands Avenue traffic lights), going towards Hull/from Cottingham.  Only this one stop is affected, and the stop on the other side of the road will still be served as normal.  If you normally board or alight the bus here there are several alternative stops available, including the stop outside McDonalds, the stop at Cottingham Grove and the stop just beyond the Chanterlands Avenue lights.  The stop will be clearly marked as 'out of use' by Hull City Council until the tree can be made safe.
