Saturday 20th July 2019

Date/Time To:

Saturday 20th July 2019

Operators Affected:

Stagecoach in Newcastle

Route(s) Affected:

10, 39, 40, X82 and 685


On Saturday 20th July 2019, a section of the A69 in both directions from the A1 to the West Denton Interchange will be closed for resurfacing works to take place.  The closures will take place between 19:00 and 07:00 and will affect the eastbound and westbound buses on services 10, 39, 40, X82 and 685.

  • Services travelling west will run as normal along West Road to the A1 Roundabout where all services will then divert  and travel via the A1 (northbound) to Stamfordham Road Interchange (B6234) before following West Denton Way and Hillhead Road, re-joining the normal routes at Hillhead Parkway (service 40), A69 Westbound (services X82) or Union Hall Road (services 10 and 39).
  • Services travelling east will run via the same diversion in reverse, (Hillhead Road, West Denton Way, Stamfordham Road Interchange and A1 (southbound) re-joining the normal route at the West Road roundabout heading towards Newcastle City Centre.

As a consequence, the above services WILL NOT serve any stops on West Road after the A1 roundabout (Ramparts, Avalon Drive, Lemington Road Ends East and West, The Burnside or South View).  Stops along the diversionary route WILL NOT be observed until Hillhead Road. 

Stagecoach would like to apologise for any inconvenience, delays or disruptions the temporary closure may cause and thank passengers for their patience and understanding.
