<![CDATA[Road Closure: Friargate, Preston]]> http://www.prestonbus.co.uk/news/RoadClosureFriargatePreston_473.html Friargate will be closed to vehicles in the Southbound direction (towards Ringway) from 09:00 Monday 16th May, until at least Thursday 26th May, to allow for emergency repairs to an electrical cable. Vehicles will still be able to travel northbound (towards the Adelphi Roundabout).

If the roadworks are completed earlier than posted, bus services will return to normal routes upon official notification.

Services outbound from the bus station will take their normal route - some delays are possible.

Services inbound to the bus station will take their normal routes to the Adelphi Roundabout, then divert to Walker Street, Lawson Street, Tenterfield Street underpass, Lancaster Road, Ormskirk Road and the bus station. Friargate and Ringway stops will not be served on journeys inbound to the bus station. Any temporary stops on Walker Street/Lawson Street will be observed.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

<![CDATA[Services 12 & 13 have route changes from Monday 16th May]]> http://www.prestonbus.co.uk/news/Services1213haveroutechangesfromMonday16thMay_472.html Since the revised route of service 13 (Penwortham Circular) was introduced in early April, severe problems with reliability of the service have been experienced. Following consultation with Lancashire County Council and Longton Parish Council, the following changes are planned to ensure a reliable and punctual service from Monday 16th May:

 

Service 12

  • In order to maintain a service along Hill Road South, the 12 will operate along this section in both directions. The service will operate via Leyland Road, Marshalls Brow, Hill Road South, Cop Lane and Pope Lane on both the inbound and outbound journey. Unfortunately, this means New Lane, Kingsfold Drive and Studholme Crescent will no longer be served.
  • The service will continue to operate to/from Lune Street and the departure times of buses from both Longton and Lune Street remain unchanged. You can download a PDF of the new timetable here.

 

Service 13

  • Service 13 will not operate via Kingsway and Queensway at peak times. This is due to congestion around the Cop Lane/Liverpool Road junction. Please consult the new timetable for details of which journeys operate via this area - you can download a PDF version here.
  • The remaining service 13 journeys that do operate via Kingsway will operate via its full length on both the outbound and inbound journey. Journeys will turn onto Liverpool Road at St Fillans Medical Centre, so Priory Lane will not be served.
  • On outward journeys, the bus will turn left at the end of Whitefield Road onto Moor Avenue and then onto Central Drive. The service will no longer ‘loop’ the northern side of Moor Avenue. The same route will be taken on the return journey.
  • All service 13 journeys will terminate at Booths on Millbrook Way.
  • Minor timetable changes will be introduced to take this new route into account.

 

We would like to thank passengers for their understanding, and apologise for any inconvenience caused.
