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.
