Changes to school bus services

Last updated 11th February, 2019 08:30

CH22 Cardinal Heenan - Closure of Park Lane, Roundhay

Utility works have been taking place on Park Lane between the ring road and Street Lane managed by two-way lights. Due to cars violating the one way system and making it unsafe, the road will now be fully closed to all traffic until the 7th March, 2019.

CH22 will therefore make a short diversion using Roman Road between the ring road and Street Lane.

M4 NHGS - temporary diversion - roadworks at Court Lane, Highroad Well

Unannounced roadworks have appeared at Court Lane, Highroad Well blocking off the road. The M4 will divert in the AM as follows: from Norton Tower via the usual route to the roundabout at Highroad Well Lane/Court Lane then continue straight along Highroad Well Lane, right onto Albert Road, right onto Spring Hall Lane, right again onto Gibbett Street then turn left onto Warley Road to follow the usual route thereafter. (In reverse of this diversion in the PM)

All stops will be observed along the diversionary route.

M8 NHGS - temporary diversion - roadworks at Brian Royd Lane Greetland

Unannounced roadworks have commenced at Brian Royd Lane, Greetland, making operations difficult. The M8 will divert toward Barkisland along the Saddleworth Road then turn back to Greetland along the Greetland Road and the Rochdale Road to re-join the regular route. We are advised no passengers will be affected in terms of bus stops.

Due to the closure of Gosport Lane, the M8 for North Halifax Grammar School will divert slightly after New Hey Road to operate via Stainland Road - omitting Gosport Lane and Forrest Hill Road - then as the usual route.

 Long term roadworks, Mytholmroyd
