Bus Diverions & Roadworks

Date/Time From:

February 2021

Date/Time To:

September 2021

Operators Affected:

Stagecoach in Newcastle

Route(s) Affected:

St.James Boulevard


We have been advised of major roadworks on St.James Boulevard in Newcastle City Centre, which will commence in February 2021.

These works, at St.James Boulevard’s junction with Bath Lane and Wellington Street, will take around seven months to complete.

Working hours will typically be Monday to Friday between approximately 0800 and 1600, with some occasional nightshift and weekend working.

These works will amend the signalised junction, improving links for pedestrians. In order to deliver the works in a safe manner, some lane closures, temporary traffic signals and temporary road closures will be introduced.  We are advised roads will only be closed when unavoidable and for the minimum duration. When we become aware of any road closures, we will post them on this page.

Due to the nature of these temporary restrictions, traffic flow in this area and on surrounding roads will be subject to disruption, and as a consequence buses may be delayed.

Stagecoach would like to apologise for any inconvenience these delays may cause, and thank customers for their patience and understanding during their delivery by Newcastle City Council.
