Date/Time From:

12th June 2021

Date/Time To:

13th June 2021

Operators Affected:

Stagecoach in Newcastle

Route(s) Affected:

6 and X47

Description:

From 0600 on Saturday 12th June until 23:59 on Sunday 13th June 2021, the Kingston Park Metro crossings will be closed whilst routine track safety inspections take place.

As a result of the closures, affected bus services will divert as follows:

 Service 6 towards Metrocentre – Will divert from Windsor Way via Windsor Way (west side), Ponteland Road, Tudor Way (east side), Kingston Park Shops, Brunton Lane, then normal route.

 Service 6 towards Four Lane Ends – Will follow the same diversion route in reverse, operating via Brunton Lane, Kingston Park Shops, Tudor Way (east side), Ponteland Road, Windsor Way (full length), then normal routes.

 Service X47 – Will divert after Tudor Grange via Ponteland Road, Brunton Road, Windsor Way (Full length), Kingston Park Road, Brunton Lane, Brunton Road, Ponteland Road and Tudor Grange.

During periods of the closures, buses will be unable to observe a number of their normal stops around Kingston Park. Service X47 in particular will be unable to serve bus stops at Kingston Park Shops, or the east side of Tudor Way, and X47 will also serve Ascot Court approx. 5 minutes earlier than normal (picking up customers when heading towards The Windsor, rather than toward Kingston Park Shops).

Buses will observe all recognised stops along the line of their diversionary routes.

Due to the necessary diversions, there may be also be some localised delays.
