Road Closure: Stoneham Lane, Swaythling - 29th Oct for 8 weeks

68 days ago Mon 8th Oct 2018

Please be aware that Stoneham Lane near Market Buildings in Swaythling will be closed for 7 weeks for traffic light upgrades, affecting Bluestar 2 and Unilink U2C.

Bluestar 2

Bluestar 2 towards Southampton (which will already be diverting due to the Stoneham Lane closure at the Eastleigh end) will divert from Stoneham Lane / Concorde Club, and will run via the M27 J5 roundabout and Stoneham Way to re-join normal route from Swaythling McDonalds.

Bluestar 2 will do the same in reverse.

The 15:10 Bluestar 2 service from Leaside Way to Southampton, will run via Bassett Green Road, left on to Stoneham Way, around the M27 J5 roundabout and come back down Stoneham Way, to rejoin normal route from Swaythling McDonalds.

Unilink U2C

Due to reliability issues with the previous U2B/C diversion at peak times, while works on Stoneham Lane – Market Buildings continue, U2C will use a revised diversion from 20th November to divert away from Avenue traffic, this diversion will apply for all U2C services diverting from Lobelia Road. From Lobelia Road, services will turn left onto Bassett Green Road and continue to Chilworth Roundabout, take the 1st Exit onto Bassett Avenue and take the 3rd left turning onto Glen Eyre Road (by the travel information sign), continue along Glen Eyre Road until they pass Glen Eyre Halls and continue to Highfield interchange from there.
