Route(s) Affected:

South Shields Routes


South Tyneside Council and Nexus have advised that that between 12:30 and 14:30 on Saturday 6th July 2019, the Summer Festival Opening Parade will be taking place in South Shields. As in previous years, the parade will travel along Fowler Street onto Ocean Road and Sea Road before ending in Bents Park.  

All services running to and from South Shields Town Centre may experience localised delays or possible diversion via Station Road.  As buses will be unable to serve Keppel Street, Fowler Street, Westoe Road (Town Hall), Ocean Road or Sea Road during the closures, passengers should use the stops on Church Way and Chapter Row for their journey. 

  • Service E1 to South Shields – will travel as normal along Mowbray Road before diverting at The New Crown Hotel and running via Bents Park Road, Sea Way, Salisbury Place and Beach Road, continuing down Crossgate and Station Road before joining the normal route on Church Way/Chapter Row.
  • Service E1 from South Shields – will operate the same diversion in reverse (Station Road, Crossgate, Beach Road, Salisbury Place, Sea Way and Bents Park Road before re-joining the normal route on Mowbray Road.)

Stagecoach apologise for any inconvenience or delays this event may cause and thank customers for their patience and understanding.
