St Georges Road is closed to vehicles until further notice, due to emergency roadworks at the junction with Deepdale Road

St George's Road in Preston is closed to through traffic between St Anthony's Road and Deepdale Road. Services 14, 88A and 88C are diverted UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE due to emergency works on a section of collapsed carriageway at the junction of St George's Road and Deepdale Road.

Buses will serve Lancaster Road as usual on outbound journeys, then turn right onto Ringroad, and then use Deepdale Road. On inbound journeys Deepdale Road will be used, together with Ringway, Percy Street and Lord's Walk to the bus station. As all traffic is diverted, there may be some delays, especially at peak travelling times. Delays are also expected on service 19A, as Deepdale Road is experiencing congestion due to the roadworks.

Stops on North Road, St Paul's Road and St. Georges Road (between St Paul's and Deepdale) will NOT be in service. Passengers should board at the Bus Station, Lancaster Road or Deepdale Road.

Apologies for any inconvenience caused, and thank you for your patience.

<![CDATA[Fishergate Improvement Scheme - work starts again]]> http://www.prestonbus.co.uk/news/FishergateImprovementScheme-workstartsagain_323.html
Long term roadworks on Fishergate started on Monday 16th February.

Work has now begun again on Fishergate in the city centre. The second phase of the Fishergate Improvement Scheme is expected to last into November 2015, with the third stage - and completion of the scheme - in 2016.

From Monday 16th February, Fishergate became one-way, with Guildhall Street temporarily closed off, and the right turn from Cannon Street permanently removed and replaced with a left turn onto Fishergate.

The bus stop outside Boots will be OUT OF USE. For the duration of the roadworks customers are advised to board at the last stop on Lancaster Road, outside Greenhalgh's Bakers (near Nat West Bank) or the railway station.

There is a possibility of intermittent delays to services using the city centre, particularly Park & Ride service 1, and the Orbit 88C and 89. Effects may also be felt on services 12/12A, 13/13A, and 75.

Park & Ride service 1 will also experience delays due to work being carried out on London Road.

Apologies for any inconvenience while the roadworks are in place, and thank you for your patience.

<![CDATA[Bus Stop Suspended]]> http://www.prestonbus.co.uk/news/BusStopSuspended_313.html Use of the Friargate/Walker Street bus stop (the first bus stop on Friargate for services inbound to the bus station) has been suspended for the foreseeable future - possibly for up to three months. This is because there are pedestrian safety concerns stemming from building work taking place in the vicinity.

Passengers of services affected (23, 31/31A, 35, 44, 68, 80) are requested to please use the next stop on Friargate as an alternative (opposite Heatley Street).

Thank you for your patience, and apologies for any inconvenience, the circumstances are out of our control.
