147 bus re-routed during water mains replacement

26 May 2009

Temporary Whitworth Street stop for Oxford Road-bound service

147 bus

During the upgrade works to the water mains, traffic along Sackville Street will be one-way and dual-lane towards the city centre. There will therefore be no access to Sackville Street from Whitworth Street and consequently no access from Granby Row to the Gatehouse.

Charles Street will remain open in both directions.

When travelling towards Oxford Road, the 147 bus will not stop on Sackville Street or at the car park end of Charles Street, but will utilise a temporary stop on Whitworth Street highlighted on:

In the other direction, the route is not affected but the service may be slower due to the increase in traffic.

The works are due to complete in August 2009 and all routes should then return to normal.
