Update on Bus Diversions


Arriva (Heckmondwike and Wakefield depots) Wakefield have confirmed that they have revised their diversion in Gildersome as follows:


229 x29 425 427 towards Leeds and Wakefield will now operate normal route to Gildersome Green and then right into College Road and then left into  Gelderd Road



The 205 is remaining on the previous diversion via Street Lane and Gelderd Road


The 65 is also remaining on the previous diversion via Street Lane and Gelderd Road for now, but First are going to do a bus test today on College Road as they not happy about using it until they’ve done a test. So the diversion for the 65 may change.


Of the three temporary stops on Gelderd Road, only one,  the northernmost one closest to Branch Road / Asquith Avenue jct., is being used by 229 x29 425 427.
