Area 2 Rail Replacement - Planned 03 June to 18 July 2019

21 May 2019


  • In the leaflet it states that during ‘Route C’ Langsett Road / Langsett Rise (37026679) bus stop will not be in use on the 20th and 21st June. These dates have now changed and this bus stop will not be in use 28th June – 1st July. This is due to the work site moving.
  • During ‘Route C', when travelling from the City Centre on the SL1/a, the bus will serve Langsett Road / Hatton Road instead of Hillsborough Interchange in this direction.
