  • Hull - Hessle Road

From 16 October until 17 November, part of the westbound carriageway of Hessle Road will be closed, meaning buses cannot serve part of Hessle Road.

Service 57 buses towards Hessle divert via Askew Avenue/Pickering Road, and cannot serve Hessle Road between these two points.

Service 57 buses towards Hull can follow their normal route. 

**UPDATE 17/10/17** - Hull City Council have now confirmed we can access Summergroves Way during the roadworks.  Therefore Service 57 will continue to run via Summergroves Way as normal. 


  • Scarborough

For seven weeks from Monday 16 October, roadworks will be taking place in Valley Bridge.  Buses leaving the town centre will be able to take their normal route, but won't be able to serve the bus stop on Valley Bridge.  Please use the stops in the town centre instead (e.g. West Square near the Rail Station for Services 120/X20/121 or Westborough for all other services).

Buses on their way into Scarborough Town Centre will have to divert via Lower Ramshill and Vernon Road into the Town Centre, missing Valley Bridge. 

This may lead to some delays and traffic congestion in the town centre.


  • Eastrington

On Tuesday 17 October Eastrington Rail Bridge will be closed from 8am until 5pm.  During this time, all Service 155 and X55 buses will divert via Portington, and we can't serve stops on Eastrington High Street.


  • 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.



  • Rawcliffe Bridge


For 4 weeks from 23 October, Service 88 will be unable to serve Rawcliffe Bridge as the bridge will be closed.

Service 88 will divert around via the A614 and Greenland Lane.

A shuttle bus will run between Rawcliffe Bridge and Rawcliffe, where it will connect with SErvice 88.  Please catch this at your normal time from Rawcliffe Bridge or Rawcliffe.  (Please note the shuttle bus is not run by EYMS).



  • Hull - Newland Avenue/Cottingham Road

Newland Avenue will be completely closed from Monday 11 September until Thursday 5 October, for road maintenance.  It will reopen for Hull Fair week (6 October until 15 October), and then will close again from Monday 16 October until Wednesday 27 October.  *** DATES HAVE NOW CHANGED, AND COTTINGHAM ROAD NOW CLOSING TOO, SEE BELOW FOR INFORMATION ***

Whilst the road is closed, all our Avenues buses will have to divert via Queens Road, Beverley Road and Cottingham Road in both directions, so all stops on Newland Avenue cannot be served.  Stops on Princes Avenue will be served as normal.

As the diversion is quite long, we also expect buses to be delayed - apologies in advance.

We did ask the council to make an exemption to allow buses through the roadworks, but this was not possible.

*** STOP PRESS 30/9/17 *** The road has reopened from 30 September, so we are back to normal route until after Hull Fair, when the road will close again.

*** STOP PRESS 12.10.17 ***  The demolition of an unsafe building on Beverley Road means that changes have been made to the reopening date/times of Newland Avenue.  The road will remain open for Hull Fair until 15 October.  From 16 October, the road will close, but only between 9.30am and 4pm.  Outside of these times (i.e. before 9.30am and after 4pm), buses will be able to go along Newland Avenue.  This 'middle of the day' closure will last until the work on Beverley Road has been completed, after which Newland Avenue will go back to being closed 24/7 until Friday 27 October.  Unfortunately, we don't yet know when the Beverley Road works will be completed - it is expected to be a few days, but we haven't had any confirmation yet of exactly when it will finish. 

There will also be work taking place at the junction of Newland Avenue and Cottingham Road which will mean Cottingham Road will be closed.  These works take place overnight, from 7pm until 6am from Monday 23 October until Friday 27 October.  During this time, buses in the area will divert via Cranbrook Avenue, Inglemire Lane and Beverley Road in both directions, missing some stops on Cottingham Road.

Apologies for the complexity of these diversions - unfortunately, the information we are being given by the council keeps changing at short notice, which makes it difficult for us to warn you in advance when services will have to divert.


  • Goole

From Monday 28 August a short section of Pasture Road will be closed.  We believe it will be shut for up to three months.  During this time, some buses in Goole will have to divert.  Stops on Pasture Road between Centenary Road and Boothferry Road can't be served.  There may also be some minor delays.

*** STOP PRESS *** The road never closed, and we understand the roadworks have been postponed, although we've been given no further information about when they will now begin.  We're back to normal route until the road closes.


  • Anlaby


Part of Tranby Lane in Anlaby will be closed for flood works from 24 July until 4 September.  During this time, Services 151 and 153 buses from Hull will divert via Wilson Street, right onto Beverley Road, left onto Woodland Drive, then their normal route.  Woodland Drive will be a 'hail and ride' area during the closure, so if you want to board the bus along here please stand in a safe place and make sure you signal clearly to the driver as the bus approaches.

*** Please note that the dates for these roadworks have now changed for a third time.  The works have been delayed, and we will divert from now until the works finish on 8 November. ***


  • Bridlington - roadworks

Long-term roadworks in Bridlington cause diversions for buses in the town.

Buses coming in to the town via Bessingby (Services 505/506, 45/46 & 121) will use Station Avenue (turning left just after B&Q) and then Quay Road.  Leaving Bridlington (towards Hull), they will use their normal route.

Any buses which normally use Prospect Road to leave the Bus Station/Town Centre (Services 505, 507, 517 & 512) willl use Bridge Street, Hilderthorpe Road and Springfield Avenue, before resuming their normal route on Quay Road.  These buses can run their normal route on the way into the town centre/Bus Station.



  • 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.
