88C Fishergate Improvement Scheme 16th February - 12th November
Work on the second phase of the Fishergate Improvement Scheme began on Monday 16th February, and is expected to last until November.

Fishergate is now one way with the permanent removal of the right turn from Cannon Street, but with a new left turn put into place.

Guildhall Street, at the section next to Fishergate, will be temporarily closed to through traffic until this part of the work is finished.

These aspects of the scheme should not affect bus services. Please note though, THE BUS STOP OUTSIDE BOOTS IS TEMPORARILY OUT OF USE. Passengers are advised to use the last stop on LANCASTER ROAD, the stop outside GREENHALGH’S BAKERS (near NATWEST) or the RAILWAY STATION stop instead.

Apologies for any inconvenience, and thank you for your patience during this long term improvement scheme.

88C Ringway underpass waterproofing works 11th May - 8th August
Roadworks are scheduled on Ringway between North Road and Friargate. From Monday 11 May to Saturday 8 August, overnight and weekend lane closures will take place for essential maintenance.

Lancashire County Council is applying a waterproof layer to the underpass to prevent water damage to the bridge - this involves removing the road surface.

Weekday nights 20:00 - 06:00 there will be lane restrictions in place. For three weekends in May and June there will be a complete closure of one side of the carriageway between North Road and Friargate. Work on these weekends will be in progress 24 hours a day. During this time only one side of the carriageway will be in use and both directions reduced to one lane.

The weekends are:
Friday 29 May to Monday 1 June
Friday 5 June to Monday 8 June
Friday 19 June to Monday 22 June

Services affected will include Park & Ride 1, 31/31A, 23, 35, 44, Orbit 88A/88C, 89, 12/12A, 13/13A, 75, 80, 68.

We hope disruption during the day will be kept to a minimum, but there may be knock on effects felt on many services. Ringway bus stops may be out of service at different times during the progression of the works, but the stops will be marked at the time and we will update as we learn of changes. Delays to services are probable during evenings and weekends.

Apologies for any inconvenience suffered, and thank you for your patience

88C Closure of Cadley Causeway for Gas Main Replacement 3rd August - 4th September
From Monday 3rd August Cadley Causeway will be closed to through traffic as essential work is carried out to replace gas mains. The road is expected to re-open by the evening of Monday 7th September 2015. We will update if the finishing date changes.

Because of the length of the ’official’ diversion and expected traffic chaos resulting from many pupils returning to school during the week of September 1st, the diversion route for the Orbit services 88A/88C will be via Lightfoot Lane and Garstang Road.

88A will operate normal route to Royal Preston Hospital, then at the Black Bull lights turn right onto Garstang Road. Road safety and congestion issues mean the Garstang Road bus stop outside the Black Bull pub WILL NOT BE OBSERVED by 88A. From Garstang Road 88A will turn onto Eastway, Lightfoot Lane, Tom Benson Way, Tag Lane, then right onto Tanterton Hall Road and back onto normal route.

88C will operate the diversion in reverse: normal route to Tanterton Hall Road, left onto Tag Lane, Tom Benson Lane, Lightfoot Lane, Eastway, turning back towards Garstang Road at the Phantom Winger roundabout, Garstang Road, left onto Sharoe Green Lane at the Black Bull lights and back onto normal route. The bus stop on Garstang Road opposite Brookside Road and post office WILL BE OBSERVED by 88C.

Customers wishing to travel to and from parts of Tag Lane normally served by Orbit should use service 35 to connect, and customers for Blackbull Lane should use service 23 to connect at Sharoe Green Lane.

We apologise for the obvious inconvenience of such a lengthy diversion, however given expected reduced traffic levels in August we hope to be able to keep the Orbit services punctual and reliable during the roadworks. Thank you for your patience.
