BUSES will be diverted as main routes through Sheffield city centre are closed during the Liberal Democrat Spring Conference.
Services are unable to use Leopold Street during the event, from Friday until Sunday, with thousands of demonstrators due to protest on Friday and Saturday.
And the only buses that will continue to use Pinstone Street is the FreeBee and the Sheffield night buses – N1/N2/N3. If closure of Pinstone Street becomes necessary, the FreeBee will not turn up Norfolk Street but continue around Arundel Gate.
Services 11, 12, 81, 82, 83, 85, 88, 88A will be diverted at Angel Street and run via Castle Street, Haymarket and Arundel Gate, then their normal route.
City-bound services from West Street – 30, 40, 44, 51, 51A, 52, 95, 120, 123, 505, 714, X30 – will use Carver Street, Charter Row and Moor Foot, all but the 51 and 40 continuing on Arundel Gate.
Services which run up High Street and Church Street on to Leopold Street will run via Arundel Gate and will not serve High Street, Church Street or Leopold Street. Supertram will be unaffected.
The City Hall box office is temporarily moving to Ponds Forge. It will be open 9am until 4pm tomorrow, and 11am until 4pm on Saturday. The box office will shut on Sunday but will reopen at City Hall on Monday.
