  • Seaton

Yorkshire Water will be carrying out emergency works on Westgate in Hornsea on Monday 10 December.  From 9.30am Services 240 and 246 will have to divert between Sigglesthorne and Hornsea via Great Hatfield Road, Sigglesthorne Road, Great Hatfield, Hornsea Road, Hull Road and Southgate.  This means we can't serve Seaton.

We've been told the road will be closed until 3.30pm, although depending on the progress of the work it may be able to reopen soooner.  We'll return to our normal routes as soon as the road fully reopens.


  • Market Weighton

Market Weighton Christmas lights switch-on takes place on Thursday 6 December.  Market Place, High Street, Holme Road and Londesborough Road will be closed 5.15pm-9.30pm.  Services 45, 46, X46 and X47 will divert via the A1079 to Sancton Road, then turn at the roundabout at the junction with Finkle Street and return via Sancton Road and the A1079 to their normal route.  York Road and Market Place can't be served.


  • 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.


  • 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.
