Last updated 24/5/18: There are current or upcoming roadworks or events in the following areas:
- Brough/Elloughton - emergency road closure CHANGE TO DIVERSION - details
- Hull - race road closures - details
- Goole - road closure - details
- Bridlington - Hilderthorpe Road - details
- Hull - Cottingham Road stop - details
A hole has opened up at the main Welton Road/Elloughton Road crossroads in Brough, meaning it will be closed for emergency repairs on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 May.
As the crossroads will be completely closed, and there's no suitable diversion route for buses, stops on Welton Road between Moor Lane and Elloughton Road, and on Elloughton Road itself, cannot be served.
Buses towards Hull/Ferriby will call at the EYMS Depot in Elloughton as normal, and then will go straight down Welton Low Road, coming into Brough and turning at the Moor Lane roundabout, and then back out again and proceding to Ferriby/Hull. Buses towards Goole/Beverley follow this diversion in reverse.
Anyone wanting to board buses from Brough or Elloughton will need to use the stops at the EYMS Depot on Stockbridge Road, or the stop on Welton Road between the Moor Lane roundabout and the A63.
Apologies for the inconvenience caused, and for the short notice - as these roadworks are urgent works we were only notified the day before. We are putting up posters at the affected stops as fast as we can.
*** STOP PRESS *** The workmen now haven't had to fully close the junction to fix the hole, so we're able to take a better diversion. Buses will go into the EYMS Depot in Elloughton as normal, and then down via Stockbridge Road, Cave Road and Welton Road to rejoin their normal route at the junction. This means that all stops on Welton Road can now be served. Stops on Elloughton Road still can't be used, but residents in this area can use the stops at the EYMS Depot in Elloughton or the stop on Welton Road near Morrisons.
On Sunday 10 June some races in Hull will cause many road closures, especially for buses in the city centre and along Beverley Road/Avenues/Spring Bank.
East Hull buses - until 1pm, buses arriving in Hull will have to divert from Holderness Road via Mount Pleasant, A63 and Ferensway to the Interchange, missing stops in the city centre. Buses leaving Hull will use Ferensway, Spencer Street, Prospect Street, Brook Street, back to Ferensway, A63 and Mount Pleasant to Holderness Road. At 1pm, some roads will reopen, so buses can divert via North Bridge, George Street and Bond Street in both directions. From 4pm, all roads should reopen and buses can return to their normal routes.
Beverley Road buses - From 8am-1pm, both The Avenues and the junction at Beverley Road/Ferensway will be closed, which means buses won't be able to serve much of Beverley Road. Buses coming into Hull will go as far as the Greenwood Avenue junction, and then will go via Greenwood Avenue, Hall Road, Fairfax Avenue, Bricknell Avenue, Chanterlands Avenue, Spring Bank West, Walton Street, Anlaby Road, Park Street and Hull Interchange. Buses leaving Hull will take this diversion in reverse, leaving the Interchange via Park Street. From 1pm, we will be able to serve Beverley Road again, but we won't be able to go around the city centre loop until 4pm, when all roads reopen.
Cottingham/University buses - until 1pm, Service 115 buses into Hull will take their normal route as far as Endike Lane, and then will divert via Hall Road to Cottingham Road. All Service 103/105/115 buses will go from Cottingham Road via Chanterlands Avenue, Spring Bank West, Walton Street, Anlaby Road and Park Street to Hull Interchange. Buses leaving Hull will take this diversion in reverse, leaving the Interchange via Park Street. This means buses won't be able to serve stops on Cranbrook Avenue, Newland Avenue, Princes Avenue and Spring Bank, or Beverley Road for Service 105. From 1pm buses will be able to serve most of their normal route again, but won't be able to go around the city centre loop until 4pm, when all roads reopen.
Willerby Road buses - from 8am-1pm buses into Hull will take their normal route as far as Walton Street, then will use Walton Street, Anlaby Road and Park Street to the Interchange. Buses leaving Hull will follow this route in reverse, leaving the Interchange via Park Street. From 1pm buses will be able to serve Spring Bank again, but we won't be able to go around the city centre loop until 1pm, when all roads reopen.
Anlaby Road/Hessle Road buses - until 4pm buses won't be able to go around the city centre loop, so they will go along Ferensway straight to the Interchange, and will leave the Interchange via Park Street.
Service 57 Westbound (Longhill-Hessle) - until 1pm buses to Hessle will divert from Holderness Road via Mount Pleasant and the A63 to Ferensway, missing stops in the city centre. From Ferensway, they'll turn onto Anlaby Road and resume their normal route. They'll wait at the New York stop on Anlaby Road until the time they would normally have left the stop on Carr Lane. At 1pm some roads will reopen, so they will be able to take their normal route along Holderness Road, and then will divert in the city centre, via North Bridge, George Street, Bond Street, Albion Street, Prospect Street, Brook Street, Ferensway and back to their normal route on Anlaby Road. These buses will wait at the Cenotaph stop on Ferensway until the time they would normally have left the stop on Carr Lane. From 4pm buses will be back to their normal routes.
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.
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.
