❄ Ice on Brighton Rd ❄

Valid from Tuesday, Aug 09, 2022 8:56 AM

Due to ice on Brighton Rd, route 70 is currently experiencing some delays.
DCC are working on gritting the road, but because of the shady area, it is likely delays will continue for most of the morning.
Apologies for the inconvenience.

🔴🚧 Green Island Two Way Closure 🚧🔴

Valid from Monday, Aug 01, 2022 6:00 AM

From Monday 1st August, work on the Green Island roundabout will continue - introducing a two-way closure for the centre.

This means that bus routes servicing the area will not be able to travel between Carnforth St and Jenkins St.

Route 40C will travel via the Motorway and service the super stop as normal.

Routes 77 and the 70 extension to Concord will detour via Carnforth and Neill Streets, coming back into Green Island, servicing the super stop and turning around using Howden/Jenkins Streets.

This will miss stops at the following locations:

- Main South Rd 183, 188, 168, 158, corner Harraway Rd


There will be a pair of temporary stops on Neill St for use during this time at the following locations:

- City bound: Neill St, by the rugby grounds after the intersection with Christie St.

- Mosgiel bound: Neill St, opposite 44-46.

Thanks for your patience with this long running detour. We will keep you posted if there are changes with this work.
