OVO Cycling Event - Salisbury diversions and disruptions

Today 00:00

  • Affected routes:
  • X3

Due to the OVO Cycling event being held in Salisbury on Thursday 23 May certain roads around the City Centre will be closed to traffic which will affect Service X3 as follows:

Before 0900 - no change

Between 0900 and 1300 - buses to Salisbury will follow the normal route but terminate at Castle St (Tesco). Buses to Bournemouth will depart from the Coach Park off Castle St as Blue Boar Row will be closed. Bus stops on Blue Boar Row, Brown St and Exeter St will not be served.

From 1300 - buses to Salisbury will only drop off at the Coach Park as all roads in the City Centre will be closed. Buses to Bournemouth will continue to depart from the Coach Park and not pick up in the City Centre (as above).

A temporary bus station will be located in the Coach park and staff will be on hand to assist throughout the day.

Hunger Hill improvement works

20th Oct onwards

Borough of Poole have contracted improvement works to take place at the Hunger Hill junction from 8th October for the period of approximately 9 months.

No full closures are anticipated but lane reductions and revised traffic signalling may cause delays to the services that use this junction, but knock-on effects may be felt throughout the entire network.

The services using Hunger Hill are 3, 8, 10, 40, 152 and X8.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

A338 roadworks

1st Oct - 30th Jun

Due to roadworks taking place on the A338, we expect to see some heavy delays on services that use this road including X3 and X6. These works are expected to last until June 2019.

We advise customers using these services to allow additional time for their journey as delays of up to 30 minutes are likely.

We will continue to monitor the delays and take action to improve reliability where possible. We have already added an extra bus into service. This allows us extra journey time so that departures from Bournemouth have a better chance of starting on time, rather than experiencing knock-on delays from previous late journeys.

We apologise for any inconvenience during this period of disruption outside of our control.
