There are often events and roadworks around the region which may cause delays or diversions for bus services.  Thank you for your patience during any delays.

When scheduled roadworks may affect passengers we'll let you know through posters on the buses and here on our website.  Please allow extra time for your journey if there are roadworks on your route.

If you have any questions about the roadworks below give BusLine a ring on 01482 59 29 29.  They're open Mon-Sat 8am-6pm.  They can let you know the latest situation on the roads, tell you where your nearest bus stop can be found, and suggest ways to make your journey easier.  To keep up-to-date on roadworks you can also sign up to our e-newsletter on our homepage.  Or follow us on   Twitter logo   at

  • Bridlington - evening road closure - details
  • Bridlington - Prospect Street - details

  • Scarborough - St Nicholas Street

St Nicholas Street in Scarborough will be closed for resurfacing for up to two weeks from Monday 20 March.  Buses which travel this way - including Services 1, 3A, 7, 10, 17 and Park & Ride buses, will have to divert.  These buses will not be able to serve the stops at Harcourt Place and Aquarium Top during the closure.  Please use alternative stops, for example further on in the town centre.  St Thomas Street will be served as normal.


  • Hedon Road, Hull


From Friday 10 February, for six nights, Hedon Road is closed overnight from Marfleet roundabout to Southcoates roundabout.

The following buses will have to divert: Service 75 from Hull at 7.15pm, 8.15pm (Fri/Sat only), 9.15pm and 11pm, Service 77 from Hull at 6.45am, Service 75 from Hedon at 7.39pm (Fri/Sat only), 8.39pm aand 10.26pm, and Service 77 from Hedon at 6.17am and 6.47am.

Buses will divert via Holderness Road, Bilton, Preston and Staithes Lane into Hedon, with buses towards Hull taking this diversion in reverse.  Hedon Road and Southcoates Lane stops can't be served.


  • Bridlington

Yet more roadworks have appeared in Bridlington.  The junction of Queensgate and Fortyfoot has been closed, and we understand it will be closed for around a month, weather dependent.  The following services will be affected:

The Service 121 bus from Bridlington to Scarborough that normally serves East Riding College will have to go via Fortyfoot like the other Service 121 buses do, missing the stop at the college.

Service 503 buses from the Bus Station will continue up Fortyfoot and on to Marton Road (and can't serve Hustler Road).  On the way back into town, they will be able to run their normal route until St Columba Road, then will turn right up Iona Road, then back out onto Queensgate.

Service 510 buses from Bridlington will go straight up Fortyfoot and right onto Sewerby Road.  Buses into Bridlington will be able to take their normal route.



  • Bridlington

From the evening of Monday 23 January, Market Place in Bridlington will be closed overnight from 6pm, for approximately eight weeks.  This will only affect the last Service 517 bus (which leaves the Bus Station at 5.50pm).  The bus will have to divert via Scarborough Road and South Bank Lane, resuming its normal route at Brookland Road.  It will miss stops at Market Place, Westgate and parts of South Bank Lane.  No other journeys should be affected.

Sorry for the late minute notification of this diversion, it is a short notice closure.


  • Bridlington - Prospect Street

From 3 January, all town services which normally leave the Bus Station via Prospect Street will have to divert around the new one-way system, via Bridge Street, Hilderthorpe Road and Springfield Avenue.  This means that bus stop at Prospect Street cannot be served.  Please use stops at the Bus Station, Quay Road or Sterling Castle instead.  Buses coming into the Bus Station will continue to use their normal route.  This diversion will continue until further notice.


  • Hull - Park Street

From 9 January Park Street Bridge will be closed for maintenance work until around 1 March.  Although this does not directly affect buses, which cannot use Park Street Bridge due to the weight limit, it does mean that there may be extra traffic around the top of Anlaby Road and Ferensway as other traffic diverts around the closures, which may cause delays for buses entering and leaving the city centre/Interchange.  You should also be aware of this if you walk to/from the Interchange using Park Street Bridge, as we believe it will also be closed to pedestrians.

Once the work is fully completed on the bridge, buses should be able to use it, which will help buses keep to time when Anlaby Road and Ferensway are gridlocked.


  • 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.
