Stagecoach to resume running via Emlyn Square
« on: August 26, 2014, 02:12:27 PM »
Stagecoach services 8, 9, 9A, 53, 55 & 55A as well as Sunday Services 13, 14 and 19 are to resume running via Emlyn Square rather than Faringdon Road from 31st August.

Buses will turn right into Emlyn Square and then left into Bristol Street.

It is almost a return to the route followed before the scaffolding was needed on the Mechanics' Institute and blocked the road by the junction with London Street.

No news if Thamesdown are to follow suit as yet.

Seems to be a bit of confusion this morning.

One bus certainly did take the new route but most seem to be carrying on along Faringdon Road.

Bus driver I spoke to said the change had been postponed a week because the scaffolding at the Mechanics' Institute had not been taken down.  That would seem to indicate they plan to run the length of Emlyn Square before turning left into Bristol Street rather than turning before the institute and going past the Cricketers.

Nothing on the bus stops saying either way of course, and the on board posters still say today....
