Bradley Stoke bus users are being warned of temporary timetable changes on the No. 73 route that will see buses arriving a few minutes earlier than usual at stops in the town.
First Group has announced that many journeys on the No. 73 route heading into Bristol will depart Cribbs Causeway up to five minutes earlier than normal from today (Sunday 12th July).
The changes are a consequence of major roadworks taking place on Filton Avenue between Station Road and Stanley Avenue to install a new northbound bus lane. The work is being carried out as part of the £70 million Greater Bristol Bus Network project and is expected to last until October.
Traffic will be allowed to travel as normal from the city towards Filton, but part of Filton Avenue will be closed to all vehicles in the opposite direction.
Buses towards the city centre will be diverted to travel along Station Road, Gloucester Road North and then Wessex Avenue before joining the existing route on Filton Avenue.
Stops on Filton Avenue normally served by the No. 73 will instead be served by a shuttle bus operated by South Gloucestershire Council (SGC) that links with the diverted First Group service.
First Group says the No. 73 services will operate to the normal timetable beyond the junction of Filton Avenue and Lockleaze Road.
