Arriva In Newcastle Changes From 20th May

From tomorrow, 20th May 2019, with the re-opening of Killingworth Road in Newcastle; Arriva North East are making changes to routes 54, X7 and X8.

Service 54: Buses travelling towards Newcastle will revert to their normal route via West Farm Avenue, Salters’ Lane and Killingworth Road between Quorum and South Gosforth. However, buses travelling towards Killingworth, Shiremoor and Whitley Bay will continue to operate via Benton Park Road, Four Lane Ends Metro and Benton Road. As a result, there will be some changes to the timetable, with most buses to Newcastle running a few minutes earlier or later to reflect their revised route. Following customers’ requests, Arriva are also improving the Monday to Saturday evening service with new journeys at 20:48 from Whitley Bay to Newcastle, 21:45 from Newcastle to Killingworth and 2215 from Killingworth to Newcastle. This is being done on a trial basis to provide a later last bus from Whitley Bay and offer a full hourly evening service from Newcastle to Killingworth.

MAX X7/X8: Buses travelling towards Newcastle will revert to their normal route via Balliol, Salters’ Lane and Killingworth Road between Quorum and South Gosforth. However, buses travelling towards Blyth will continue to operate via Benton Park Road and Benton Road. As a result, there will be some changes to the timetables, with most buses to Newcastle running a few minutes earlier or later to reflect the revised route. Buses will also use Stand V instead of Stand U in the Newcastle Haymarket bus station.
