Roadworks in Summerseat, 477 diversion

published: Friday, July 21 2017

Bury Council will be closing Rowlands Road in Summerseat from 21st July 2017 through August, to allow them to resurface the road.

Unfortunately, this means that service 477 will be unable to serve the Higher Summerseat loop whilst the road is closed. Buses will run as service 478 and wait time at Trinity Green bus stops on Newcombe Road. We did look at the possibility of turning round the bus at Summerseat Garden Centre, but this has not proved possible due to safety concerns in the car park.

Regular passengers will be aware of the difficulties we've had trying to operate the bus service around Summerseat village, due to Kay Street bridge being out of commission since the flooding on Boxing Day 2015, and we can only apologise for this further disruption.
