Downhill Lane Closure

Quick question more out of curiosity than anything.

Which way is the route 50 taking now they've closed it for safety reasons. I think they should keep it open for buses and cyclists. There is currently no diversion for cyclists without using Boldon bank!

Monday, 14 September 2020 - (approx) March 2022: Routes 50 – Downhill Lane, West Boldon

Downhill Lane, West Boldon will be closed from Monday 14 September due to long-term works at A19/Downhill junction.  The works may take longer than 18 months to complete. 
During the closure, Go North Service 50 will divert via A19 and A184 in both directions omitting Downhill Lane.  Passengers should use stops on Addison Road.

Unless Testos is closed, then it has to go down Ferryboat Lane and up Hylton Lane.
Thanks chaps. Didn't think about looking on nexus site.
