Bus routes are to be altered in Sheffield city centre while roadworks are carried out for 10 weeks.

Six bus services will follow an alternative route from Monday, May 7, as two of the city centre’s busiest bus stops on Arundel Gate close for 10 weeks while roadworks are carried out.

The AG4 and AG5 bus stops, outside the Arundel Gate Mini Interchange, will not be in operation while the roadworks are carried out.

Buses which normally stop there - 1, 1a, 7, 8, 8a and X1 will run a revised northbound route, from the Moor towards Castlegate, using Furnival Street, Brown Street, Paternoster Row, Pond Street and Flat Street, and will continue their normal route at Angel Street. They will not stop on Arundel Gate.

All services travelling in the opposite direction, towards the Moor, will continue as normal and will still stop on Arundel Gate.

Arundel Gate Mini Interchange will remain open throughout the works.

A Sheffield Bus Partnership spokesperson, said: “The Sheffield Bus Partnership has worked hard to ensure that all services affected during the work on Arundel Gate bridge are reallocated to stops close by, to keep passenger disruption to a minimum and to reduce further congestion to the network.

"Passengers are encouraged to check for changes to their bus service and plan their journey in advance online attravelsouthyorkshire.com, at bus stops and Interchanges or by calling Traveline 01709 51 51 51.”

Sheffield Bus Partnership is made up of the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive, Sheffield City Council, and bus operators First South Yorkshire, Stagecoach in Sheffield, Sheffield Community Transport and TM Travel.
