Holdenhurst Road Closure - Extended Diversion Period
11th - 25th Nov
Contrary to previous notices and due to remaining roadworks blocking access, we regret that U1 services are continuing to divert via Christchurch Road, towards Bournemouth University ONLY. Services towards Dorchester House are serving all stops as usual. Customers are invited to use the Christchurch Road stops around the corner from Lansdowne as an alternative. We currently have no estimate as to when services will resume to normal, however will endeavour to keep you updated. Thank you for bearing with us.
