  • York

Skeldergate will be closed for gasworks from Monday 12 until Friday 23 November.  During this time, Services X46, X47 and 747 will divert via Micklegate, Rougier Street, the Railway Station, Queen Street and Nunnery Lane.  No stops are missed, but delays are possible due to congestion on the diversion route, so you may want to allow extra time for your journey.


  • Hull Christmas lights

On the evening of Thursday 15 November Carr Lane will be closed 4pm-9pm for the Christmas lights switch-on event.  During this time:

Buses to Anlaby Road cannot go around the city centre route, but instead will come out of the Interchange and use Brook Street, Ferenway, and then stop at a temporary stop on Anne Street before continuing down Anlaby Road.  Buses from Anlaby Road into Hull will go straight to the Interchange via Ferensway.

Buses from Spring Bank/Beverley Road will miss the city centre loop, going straight into the Interchange.

Service 57 towards Hessle will divert via Queens Dock Avenue, Bond Street, Albion Street, Prospect Street, Brook Street, Ferensway and Anlaby Road.  The bus will stop on Ferensway outside the Cenotaph.


  • Eastrington

Eastrington level crossing will be closed for repairs from 23 November.  The closure is likely to be for twelve days.  During the closure buses will divert via Sandholme (between Gilberdyke and Eastrington).


  • Driffield

Bridlington Road in Driffield will be closed from the roundabout at Fieldfare as far as the Lodge at Nafferton Slack from Monday 5 November for three months.  During this time, buses that normally use Bridlington Road (Services 121, 45, 46 and Driffield School buses) will have to divert via New Road, Scarborough Road and A614 to Nafferton (and in reverse for buses coming in the other direction).  Buses will loop around Nafferton via North Street, Driffield Road and New Road in a clockwise direction only.

*** STOP PRESS *** These roadworks have been postponed - we have not yet been given a new start date.


  • Hull - Beverley Road

Beverley Road in Hull will be closed between Cave Street and Fountain Road from 7pm on Friday 2 November until 4am on Monday 5 November.  During this time, Services 105, 106, 121, X46, X47, 122 and 246 will divert via Spring Bank, Princes Avenue and Queens Road in both directions.  Service 21 will divert from Bridlington Avenue via Fountain Road, Wincolmlee, Air Street and Sculcoates Lane in both directions.

*** STOP PRESS *** Due to the North Bridge works overrunning, the dates of this closure have changed.  Beverley Road will now be closed on the weekend of 17/18 November.


  • Scarborough

The bus stop at Aquarium Top (on Valley Road near the seafront) will be out of use from Monday 24 September until Monday 21 January 2019 due to works on The Spa footbridge.  This stop is used by Service 8 buses and Park and Ride.  During this time, a temporary bus stop will be available at the bottom of the hill on Vernon Road, so please use this temporary stop instead.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

*** STOP PRESS *** The works have been modified so that only one lane will be closed at a time, which means although Park and Ride buses will still need to serve the temporary stop on Vernon Road, Service 8 will be able to run as normal.


  • Goole

New Potter Grange Road in Goole will be closed from Monday 19 March until late June.  During this time, Goole Town Services G4 and G5 will divert via Anderson Road and Rawcliffe Road.

*** Update: as of the end of July, it is still closed ***


  • Bridlington

From Monday 2 October, part of Hilderthorpe Road will be closed between Bridge Street and Springfield Avenue for drainage works.  The road is expected to be closed until the end of January 2018.

Whilst the road is closed, Services 45, 46, 121, 506, 130 and 131 will have to divert via Station Road and Quay Road on their way to the bus station. 

On their way from the bus station, they will divert via Promenade, Trinity Road, Wellington Road, Quay Road and Station Road. 

Stops on Hilderthorpe Road, between Station Road and the town centre, cannot be served.

Service 503 will divert going south only, via Bridge Street, South Cliffe Road, South Marine Drive and Horsforth Avenue.  Buses going north should not be affected.

*** STOP PRESS *** From Friday 30 March, Hilderthorpe Road will finally be reopening for buses leaving Bridlington.  Buses leaving the town will use Bridge Street, Hilderthorpe Road and Springfield Avenue (for services serving Quay Road), and then onwards.  Buses coming into Bridlington will still have to use Station Road and Quay Road, as the road will only be open in one direction.


  • 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.
