Poole Lifting Bridge Evening Closures

Friday, September 09 2016

Poole Bridge has now re-opened since it closed for essential maintenance in September 2016. Services 8, 9 and 152 will resume their normal routes via Lower Hamworthy.

The 8 and 9 will use Poole Bridge to serve Lower Hamworthy. In the regular occurence that the bridge is lifted for sea traffic, the 8 and 9 will divert via the Twin Sails Bridge. The 152's timetable has been designed to not clash with bridge openings, however, the 152 will always wait for the bridge to lower and continue its route via Lower Hamworthy in all instances.

The 152 timetable timetable changed on Monday 22nd January to resume its normal timings.

Please note that to enable the timber decking work to be carried out, Poole Bridge will be additionally closed to road traffic overnight to minimise disruption to road users from:

  • 7pm to 7am on Monday 29 January until Friday 2 February
  • 7pm to 7am on Monday 5 February until Friday 9 February
  • 7pm to 7am on Monday 12 February until Tuesday 13 February

During these times, service will divert via the Twin Sails bridge and will not serve Lower Hamworthy.

We thank you for your patience during this closure.
