Bishopstoke Road Closure - 4th-19th November

1 month ago Mon 21st Oct 2019

Please be aware that Bishopstoke Road in Eastleigh will be closed overnight 9pm-6am for 11 weeknights, between the Lidl roundabout and Chickenhall Lane roundabout, starting Monday 4th November.

All Bluestar 2 and Bluestar 3 journeys from the start of service in the morning up to and including the...

  • 19:10 Bluestar 3 from Eastleigh and from Southampton
  • 19:50 Bluestar 2 from Southampton

...will run in full, as normal, and to the advertised route and timetable.

After this time, Bluestar 2 buses will divert after Eastleigh direct to Fair Oak via Colden Common, before serving Bishopstoke, meaning bus stops in Bishopstoke and Fair Oak will only be served "towards Southampton".

Bluestar 3 departure at 21:10 from Southampton will terminate at Bishopstoke Recreation Ground/Junction of Chickenhall Lane, and will be unable to serve the stop at Dutton Lane and Eastleigh Bus Station.
