Last updated 16th June 14:30

Hanson Lane, Halifax - full closure - 28th June to 9th July - TL1

Hanson Lane will be closed between Pellon Lane junction and Hope Street. TL1 will operate as usual as far as Hanson Lane (unaffected part) then divert via Lightowler Road, Gibbet Street to New Brunswick Street on to Pellon Lane as per the usual route to Halifax Bus Station.

Towngate, Heptonstall - full road closure 24th June - route P87

Roadworks will close Towngate to all traffic on the 24th June. Route P87 will divert in the AM after Heptonstall Road via Lee Wood Road and Draper Lane and in reverse of this in the PM.

Unfortunately, this means there will be no service to Heptonstall School and any passengers for Colden School who would usually board or alight in Heptonstall either cannot be carried or must nominate another pick up/set down stop elsewhere on the route by telephoning the usual 0113 3481122.

NB: routes C86 and C87 for Calder High School are not affected by this closure.

Heptonstall Road/Lee Wood Road, Hebden Bridge - 28th June 2021 - C86/C87/P87

We are aware of significant roadworks due to take place in June for a 2.8km stretch of road starting on Heptonstall Road at the junction with the A646 then along Lee Wood Road and Draper Lane. Updates will appear here in due course.

Suspension of bus stop 19566 - Burnley Road, Mytholmroyd (Dusty Miller Inn)

This bus stop has been taken out of service due to the ongoing flood defence works. Passengers should consider using either stop 19524 Burnley Road at White Lee (near Calder High School) or 19568 Burnley Road at White Houses (near the Co-Op). This is in effect until 14th May 2021.

NB: There have been reports of passengers attempting to board or alight at this stop. Please note, all buses will not observe this stop until it is brought back into service and passengers must use alternative stops in the meantime.

Suspension of bus stop 450 15100 - Leeds Road, Dewsbury

From 28th September stop number 450 15100 located on Leeds Road opposite Croftlands will be suspended until further notice. No temporary bus stop will be provided. This is due to a nearby building being used as a Covid 19 testing centre. The bus stop on the other side of Leeds Road is unaffected.
