Road Closures - Impact on Public Transport
  • Due to resurfacing works certain sections of Falcon Avenue and Dove Road will be closed to traffic for a period of six week days between 0800 and 1800 each day.
  • As a result of this closure, services that would normally travel along Larkway and Dove Road will be required to operate on diversion from time to time and at short notice. To avoid confusion and in order to maintain reliability, the following stops will be suspended:
  • Brickhill, Fulmar Link
  • Brickhill, Falcon Avenue
  • The Pipit Rise bus stops will remain open and in use throughout the closure and passengers will be advised to use this as their main stop to avoid any confusion.
  • When access to Larkway is restricted, buses will follow normal line of route up to Brickhill Drive. Buses will then turn into Larkway then into Pipit Rise and Fulmar Road before following normal line of route. This diversion will be operated in both directions.
  • *Please note from Monday 2nd September 2013, the Grant Palmer service 28 will no longer serve Larkway and Dove Road and this will be replaced by the Grant Palmer service 21.
