Poole Lifting Bridge Closure - service 8, 9 & 152

Friday, September 09 2016
From 12 September 2016 until the beginning of November 2017, due to essential maintenance of Poole Lifting Bridge, services 8, 9 and 152 will be using the Twin Sails Bridge in both directions at all times.
This will result in services 8 & 9 being unable to serve Lower Hamworthy at any point.
Customers are advised to use the following nearest alternative stops for services 8 & 9:
Rigler Road
West Quay Road, Twin Sails Approach
Queen Mary, West Street
Service 152 however, will be serving Lower Hamworthy and Norton Way in both directions on all trips.
The improved 152 timetable has been designed to assist Lower Hamworthy residents in particular during the closure of Poole Bridge.
During this time the 152 will operate via Twin Sails Bridge but will then loop via Blandford Road, Station Road and Norton Way in both directions, ensuring everyone still has access to a bus close by.
There are extra journeys at peak times, a half hourly frequency in the daytime plus a Sunday service too.
