Disruptions due to Summer Festival Parade on Saturday 5 July 2014

We have been advised that the Summer Festival Opening Parade will be taking place on Saturday 5 July 2014.

Last Updated: 30 June 2014 11:42 AM

To ensure health and safety is maintained, Ocean Road and parts of Sea Road will need to be closed between approximately 1230 – 1430.

During affected times, Service E1 and the Open Top City Sightseeing buses will be required to divert between South Shields Town Centre and New Crown Hotel via Anderson Street, Beach Road, Salisbury Place, Sea Way and Bents Park Road in both directions, observing all stops along the line of the diversionary route.

In addition, all services in the town may also be temporarily delayed by a rolling road closure along Fowler Street, or may be diverted away from the affected area. As a consequence of these road closures, buses are likely to be unable to serve the bus stops at Keppel Street, Fowler Street or Town Hall between approx 1230 - 1330, with all bus services in the town diverting via Station Road.

Although our local authority colleagues will endeavour to ensure that the impact on bus services is as limited as possible, there is still likely to be significant traffic congestion in the town centre area and along Ocean Road.

Due to the various road closures, and the congestion that will be created due to traffic displacement, all bus services may be subject to delay, or may be temporary diverted around the affected areas. Stagecoach apologise for any inconvenience or delays this event may cause, which is due to circumstances beyond our control.

Services Affected: 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 30, E1, E2, E6, X20

Looks like that way, should be the same as last year.


GNE have theirs on and it has the 26/26A on....

Would be a good idea - but Slatyford drivers would then need to receive driver familiarisation, unless Sunderland were going to operate them instead.

Once again....

Temporary westbound closure of Durham Road, affecting Services 3, 4, 23

On Sunday 10 August 2014, Durham Road will be closed to westbound traffic at the Tudor Grove junction whilst the carriageway is resurfaced.

Last Updated: 22 July 2014 2:03 PM

These roadworks are programmed to be in place during Sunday 10 August 2014 only, between approximately 0800 and 1800.

During the periods of the road closure, Service 3, 4, and 23 buses towards Thorney Close, Farringdon and Doxford Park will be required to divert from Barnes Park non-stop via Silksworth Lane and Premier Road. Buses will thus be unable to serve their westbound stops along Durham Road between Barnes Park and the Prospect junction.

Northbound Service 3, 4 and 23 buses (towards Sunderland City Centre) will be unaffected by these works.

Stagecoach would like to apologise for any inconvenience these temporary works authorised by Sunderland City Council may cause, and we remain grateful for customers’ patience and understanding.

Services Affected: 3, 4, 23

Closure of Queen Alexandra Road, affecting Services 18 and 19

From Monday 4 August 2014, Queen Alexandra Road will be closed between Tunstall Road and Ashbrooke Range to resurface the carriageway.

Last Updated: 22 July 2014 1:53 PM

These roadworks are likely to be in place from Monday 4 August 2014, for around 4 days, generally between 0800 - 1800.

During the periods of the road closure, Services 18 and 19 will be unable to serve Tunstall Road, Queen Alexandra Road, Sea View Road West or the Eye Hospital. Buses will instead operate via Leechmere Road and Helvellyn Road, u-turning at the Hill View Road roundabout.

Stagecoach would like to apologise for any inconvenience these temporary works authorised by Sunderland City Council may cause, and we remain grateful for customers’ patience and understanding.

Temporary southbound closure of Bedford Street, affecting Services 3, 4, 13, 16, 23, E1, E2 and E6

On Sundays 3 and 10 August 2014, Bedford Street will be temporarily closed to all southbound traffic to enable carriageway works.

Last Updated: 23 July 2014 6:42 PM

These roadworks are programmed to be in place during Sundays 3 and 10 August 2014, between approximately 0700 and 1800.

During the periods of the road closure, southbound Services 3, 4, 13, 16, 23, E1, E2 and E6 will be required to operate non-stop via West Wear Street and High Street West into John Street.

Whilst there will be no bus stops omitted by the southbound route, the increase in mileage may result in some minor delays to services.

There will be no affect on the route of northbound buses.

Stagecoach would like to apologise for any inconvenience these temporary works authorised by Sunderland City Council may cause, and we remain grateful for customers’ patience and understanding.

Services Affected: 3, 4, 13, 16, 23, E1, E2, E6

On Sunday 7 September, special Services 552 and 553 will operate between the finish line and Newcastle City Centre or South Shields Ferry.

Last Updated: 07 August 2014 4:46 PM

Also, due to temporary road closures associated with the Great North Run, many Stagecoach buses within South Shields will also be temporarily revised, with some services not running until later in the afternoon.

I've mentioned it to Go North East; as I said before, the council has not discussed the works with Go North East yet.

Clearly Stagecoach has pestered the council a lot more than Go North East.

It says:

In our most recent discussions, we have been able to agree with Sunderland City Council for the bridgehead to remain open, as a “bus only route” during the main daytime period of Sunday 17 August 2014, during which period it will be closed to all other traffic.

Soooo least Stagecoach have tried... GNE will wait till last minute like always and they will claim to of only known from that day..

Go North East has tried too. I'd actually say they're pretty good at keeping customers informed well in advance, and it's quite unusual for them to give less than week's notice in this case.

Like I say, when I gave them the head's up about it, they would have got in touch with the council then - but clearly got no where.

Stagecoach would have only received this information today, otherwise they would have had it on the website sooner. How do we know that Go North East hasn't just received the same information today too?

In addition, if the whole of "North Bridge Street" is closed on the evenings it may make it much harder for the buses to get to and from the depot.

The whole area, like the road and the roundabout/bridge should be done soon, leaving only the square left... i'm hoping they open both roads, including the new road leading to the car park while still working on the new square... and not waiting till the square is done to open it fully..
