843 Scholars Bus – Wed 15th May 2019

Nexus have this morning notified us of a diversion to the 843 Scholars Bus.

Two parts of Rectory Road, Gateshead, will be closed for gas main repair works. The 843 will therefore not operate on Rectory Road. The bus will instead operate further up Saltwell View, left onto Brinkburn Ave, left onto Whitehall Rd, right onto Saltwell Road before rejoining the normal route. This is shown in the map below. The red route is the normal route, the green is the diverted route.

The bus will operate the normal red route on Thursday morning (16th May 2019), but from Thursday afternoon onwards will operate the diverted route for the duration of the closure. The bus will stop at all stops on the diverted route.
