  • Cottingham

From Thursday 17 August until Thursday 14 September buses won't be able to serve the stop in The Lawns as the site is closed for the caravan show.  Please use the stop outside The Lawns site on Northgate instead.


  • Hedon Road

There willl be some night closures of Hedon Road, between Somerden Road and Saltend Roundabout from the night of 10 August, from 7pm until 7am.  During this time, buses along the road will divert via Staithes Road to Preston, then Wyton Road, Main Road Bilton, Ganstead Roundabout, Holderness Road, Maybury Road to Marfleet Roundabout, resuming their normal route on Hedon Road.  This diversion will be followed in reverse for buses leaving Hull.  Bus stops on Hedon Road between Saltend and Marfleet roundabout can't be served. 

The only buses which will have to divert are the Service 75/77 buses that leave Hull at 7.15pm, 9.15pm, 11.00pm and 6.30am, and those that leave Withernsea at 7.52pm, 9.45pm and 6.52pm.  On Fridays and Saturdays, the buses that leave Hull at 8.15pm and Withernsea at 6.52pm will also divert.  Daytime buses should not be affected.

We have asked Highways England several times how long these roadworks will last for, but they have been unable to tell us - they just say that they will be finished before 31 October.  They have also been unable to tell us whether they will be occuring on weeknights only, or seven nights a week.  Sorry we cannot give you any further information, but we have not been given all the details ourselves!

*** STOP PRESS *** As of 18 August we have had the following further information.  The planned work will start on the night of 21 August, and will be completed by the morning of 26 August, and will take place overnight between 8pm and 6am.  The first two evenings should only affect buses leaving Hull, and then last three evenings will only affect buses entering Hull.  However, the roadworks are weather dependent, and therefore are subject to change.


  • Brough

Roadworks will close Brough rail bridge for up to seven weeks from 25 July.  Service 158 will run up to the bridge on the south side, before looping around the industrial estate and coming back up Saltgrounds Road and Skillings Lane to the lights and rejoining its normal route at Elloughton Road.  Station Road and Welton Road can't be served, including one stop near the Ferry pub.


  • Cottingham

Harland Way in Cottingham will be closed for essential roadworks from Monday 24 July.  The roadworks should be completed by 5 September.

Whilst the road is closed, Services 61, 180, X80 and X47 will divert via West End Road, Eppleworth Road, then turn right onto Beverley Road to Skidby, then normal route.  We'll be serving all stops on the diversion route.


  • 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.  The works have been delayed, and the closure will now not START until 4 September.  We will return to our normal route from the morning of 17 August, and start diverting again when the road closures on 4 September.  Apologies for the short notice of this change, but we were not informed that the works had been delayed until we had been diverting for several weeks!


  • 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.

The roadworks mean Service X21 won't be able to serve Harbour Top on the way into Bridlington, and will divert via Kingsgate, Station Road and Quay Road (the same diversion as Service 121).  Service X21 buses back towards Hull in the afternoon will be able to follow their normal route, including Harbour Top.


  • 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.
