Diversion to service X10 and X11 from 5th June
From the 5th of June, the route between South Newsham and Newsham will be restricted to one way operation to accommodate the numerous sets of road works within this area related to Highway improvements.
As a result of these works, we will be unable to operate our normal route towards Blyth Town Centre on services X10 and X11 until the completion of these works which is expected to last until the end of August.
During this closure, we will be required to operate a diversionary route to reach Newsham Black Diamond and then onwards to Blyth Town Centre.
Both services will serve the Bus Link Road passing Portland Wynd Estate and Benridge Park, from here they will both operate non-stop via South Beach to reach the normal route from Newsham Black Diamond.
To accommodate this diversion, services heading towards Blyth will depart Newsham Black Diamond later than currently.
Throughout these works, all journeys towards Newcastle will operate to current route and timetable.
Arriva would like to apologise for any inconvenience this diversion may cause, which is a result of these works being carried out.
A copy of the revised timetable will be available shortly
