Coles Avenue Closure
24th Feb - 18th Apr
Due to emergency works along Coles Avenue resulting in a Road Closure our service 8&9 must divert for an approximate period of 3 weeks. Service 9 will serve all stops along Lake Road and Coles Avenue as normal before diverting via Legion Road and Rockley Road. The 9 will then run back along Lake Road before diverting via Blandford road to resume normal service from Hamworthy CO-OP. Service 8 will run direct via Blandford Road before resuming normal route at Hamworthy CO-OP. Due to this diversion the 8 is unable to serve any stops along Lake Road and Coles Avenue Customers are advised to use the number 9 as a shuttle service when wishing to board an 8 then alight at bus stops along Blandford Road. Customers wishing to transfer to the number 9 can do so at The Red Lion. We apologise for any inconvenience / delay caused during these works.

Route 60 will also divert via the twin Sails Bridge during these works. However, will continue to serve Lower Hamworthy, Ivor Road and Carter's Quay on its usual hourly frequency.
