Image reading 'Wallisdown Road & Boundary Roundabout Roadworks from April 4th for approx. 2 weeks'

POSTPONED: These works have been postponed until further notice due to the outbreak of coronavirus.

From Saturday 4th April, roadworks are expected to take place along Wallisdown Road and Boundary Roundabout, which will affect a number of our bus services. The works are expected to last around 2 weeks until approximately 19th April - although the end date has not yet been confirmed.

Routes U1 and U3

Towards University

Towards University, UNIBUS routes U1 and U3 usually use Gillett Road and will continue to do so. There will be no changes to the route, but they will additionally call at Talbot Manor and Talbot Avenue (where they do not normally stop) to carry anyone alighting from the 15 who needs to be taken to Fern Barrow.

Towards Dorchester House/Southbourne

Towards Dorchester House and Southbourne, UNIBUS routes U1 and U3 will leave the University Bus Hub and operate via Gillett Road to Boundary Roundabout.

Routes U2 and U4 do not operate during University vacation periods and will therefore not be affected.

morebus Route 15

The 15 will not be able to serve Wallisdown Road or Fern Barrow in either direction whilst the works are taking place. As a result, these services will be diverted in both directions.

Towards Royal Bournemouth Hospital

The 15 will serve Alder Road and Gateway Church as normal, before turning right into Winston Avenue. From there, the service will run via Guest Avenue, Yarmouth Road, Surrey Road, Branksome Wood Road and Glenferness Avenue to Talbot Roundabout. Services will then turn left into Talbot Avenue and onwards to go around Boundary Roundabout before returning to its normal route via Talbot Avenue and Talbot Road towards Winton Banks and Royal Bournemouth Hospital. All stops along the diversion route will be served.

The following stops will not be served: Alder Parade, McDonalds, Sainsburys, Langside Avenue, Wallisdown Roundabout, Aldi, St Marks Church, Bournemouth University (Stop J) and Bournemouth University (Stop G).

For access to the university, customers should use the bus stops at Talbot Manor. For those who are unable or do not wish to walk through the university campus, customers should change to/from routes U1 or U3 - see information below.

Towards Poole

The 15 will serve Talbot Roundabout and Talbot Avenue and then go right around Boundary Roundabout to go back on itself towards Talbot Roundabout before turning right into Glenferness Avenue. The service will continue to divert via Branksome Wood Road, Surrey Road, Yarmouth Road, Guest Avenue and Winston Avenue to Alder Parade where it will join its usual route at Alder Road. All stops along the diversion route will be served.

The following stops will not be served: Bournemouth University (Stop K), Bournemouth University (Stop G), St Marks Church, Alton Road, Aldi, Wallisdown Roundabout, Langside Avenue, Sainsburys and McDonalds.

For access to the university, customers should use the bus stops at Talbot Manor. For those who are unable or do not wish to walk through the university campus, customers should change to/from routes U1 or U3 - see information below.

morebus Route 16

As a result of Route 17 not being able to serve Wallisdown Road or Fern Barrow, the 16 will be amended to support customers on the 17.

There will be a special timetable in place for the 16, seven days a week, for the entirety of the closure. View temporary timetable.

Monday to Saturday daytimes will see no changes to the timetable except an additional extension of the route from Bournemouth Square to Bournemouth Station/Interchange and back.

Monday to Saturday evenings and Sunday journeys from Bournemouth to Poole will be timetabled a few minutes later than usual. Poole to Bournemouth will still be timetabled at the same times as usual, with the buses continuing on as 17s from Bournemouth Square towards Bournemouth Station and the University.

Customers that normally buy a through ticket on the 16/17 are advised to check that their intended journey is possible before starting it. Tickets will still be available, but customers may be required to change buses.

Towards Bournemouth Square

Upon arrival from Poole at Bournemouth Square, the 16 will be extended, on Monday to Saturday daytimes only, to Bournemouth Station, calling at Stop S in Bournemouth Square, then continuing via Gervis Place, Hinton Road, Bath Hill, Bath Road, Holdenhurst Road (calling at all stops) before terminating at Stop B at Bournemouth Station/Interchange. The extended service will operate at the times the 17 usually operates on this extended section of the route, because the 17 will have run earlier with a different bus.

Towards Poole

Services that usually start at Bournemouth Square towards Poole will, on Monday to Saturday daytimes only, start from Bournemouth Station/Interchange Stop B, at the times that the 17 usually departs from Stop 5. The service will operate via Holdenhurst Road, Bath Road, Bath Hill and Westover Road (calling at all stops) before terminating at Bournemouth Square Stop X from where journeys will continue as normal.

morebus Route 17

The 17 will not be able to serve Wallisdown Road in either direction whilst the works are taking place. As a result, these services will be diverted in both directions.

Customers that normally buy a through ticket on the 16/17 are advised to check that their intended journey is possible before starting it. Tickets will still be available, but customers may be required to change buses.

There will be a special timetable for route 17, seven days per week, for the closure period, though times between Poole and Wallisdown in both directions will be as normal.

View the temporary timetable.

Towards Bournemouth Square

Towards Bournemouth, the 17 will stay on its normal route to Wallisdown Roundabout and then use the officially advertised diversion of Kinson Road, Columbia Road, Ensbury Park Gyratory and Boundary Road to Boundary Roundabout. From here, it will go ahead into Gillett Road to Fern Barrow, and turn on the University Roundabout to serve Stop G on Fern Barrow as usual, then retrace itself to Boundary Roundabout and turn right onto Talbot Avenue before resuming its usual route towards Winton and Bournemouth. 

Upon arrival at Bournemouth Square, on Monday to Saturday daytimes only, the bus will terminate instead of continuing as a 16. All customers will be asked to leave the vehicle at Bournemouth Square.

We will serve all stops on the diversion routes. 

Towards Poole

Towards Poole, the 17 will serve Talbot Roundabout and Talbot Avenue before turning left into Gillett Road to Fern Barrow. It will then turn on the University Roundabout to serve Stop G on Fern Barrow as usual, then retrace itself to Boundary Roundabout and go ahead onto Boundary Road to follow the officially advertised diversion via Columbia Road and Kinson Road, resuming its normal route at Wallisdown Roundabout. 

We will serve all stops on the diversion routes.
