Overnight Road Closure: Romsey Road, Shirley
Today 00:00 - 22nd Nov
Please be aware that Romsey Road in Shirley will be closed overnight at the junction with Tebourba Way/Winchester Road on Thursday 21st November from 8pm to 6am. Bluestar 4, 17 and 18 from Shirley High Street will divert via Park Street, Oakley Road and Tebourba Way to the crossroads, where Bluestar 4 and 18 turn left for normal route to Millbrook/Romsey and Bluestar 17 continues ahead onto Winchester Road for normal route to the Hospital. Buses towards the city centre will do the same in reverse. Unfortunately this means we will be unable to serve the Grange Road bus stop on Romsey Road in both directions, and the Shirley Precinct stop towards Millbrook/Lordshill. Customers are advised to use Park Street as an alternative. Shirley Precinct towards the city will be unaffected. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

From Thornhill, Eastpoint, buses will run as normal to Hinkler Road Shops, then turn using Tatwin Crescent roundabout and then run along Hinkler Road and Thornhill Park Road to Bitterne. Unfortunately this means we will be unable to serve stops at Tatwin Crescent roundabout towards Bitterne; Byron Road, Springwell School, Hinkler Road, North East Road, Upper Deacon Road and Ruby/Bath Road in both directions; and Bitterne Leisure Centre Stop BF towards Thornhill. Your nearest alternatives are at Bitterne Leisure Centre Stop BE (Bluestar 3 stop) for Thornhill or Stop BG for City/Millbrook, or Tatwin Crescent roundabout (stop towards Eastpoint but board here for City/Millbrook).
