Station lane /Road was closed unexpectedly this morning. It was due to be close over the bank holiday. We have checked network one today around 3 times and it’s giving different times etc on the closure. For the foreseeable future passengers using Station Lane need to make their way to Churchill bus stop in Scraptoft and all passengers on Station Road need to make their way to Forest Rise bus stop (Station Road) . The road is closed between Scraptoft Road and Thurncourt Road. This will remain in place until the road is opened.

We are sorry for any unexpected changes this morning; however these circumstances are beyond our control.
