Temporary Changes to Bus Route 265 from Bath to Bradford on Avon

From Tuesday 16th August 2016 for approximately 2 weeks, traffic will not be able to turn right from Springfield on to Holt Road or Silver Street in Bradford-on-Avon.  This means that buses operating on route 265 from Bath to Bradford Town Centre, Trowbridge, Warminster and Salisbury will need to use Masons Lane instead and so will not be able serve the bus stops along Springfield or Mount Pleasant.  The nearest bus stop to Springfield for these buses will therefore be at Christchurch.
Fortunately buses operating towards Bath will not be affected by these works, so will continue to pick up at bus stops along Springfield as normal.

Posters explaining these temporary arrangements have now been placed at bus stops along Springfield and Mount Pleasant and these include details of local minibus service 98 which residents that live close to Springfield can use to travel from Springfield to Bradford-on-Avon Town Centre (albeit via a rather circuitous route).  Further details can be obtained by ringing the Wiltshire Council Passenger Transport Unit on 01225 718080.
