Details of arrangements around Yarm Fair and subsequent road closures.

 

Passengers are advised that between Tuesday 13th and Saturday 17th October, the annual Yarm Fair arrives in Yarm High Street.

As per previous years, this will result in various road closures across the week to facilitate the fairground and the traditional events.

The road closures will cause some disruption to Service 7, 17 and X17, with full details as below;

Road closures will be in effect at the following times;

  • Tuesday 13th October 17:30 until 21:30
  • Thursday 15th October 18:00 until midnight
  • Friday 16th October 18:00 until midnight
  • Saturday 17th October 10:45 until midnight

 

Service 7/7A - Stockton to Yarm

For the most part, Service 7 and 7A will be able to operate to their normal timetables, with a minor diversion in place via West Street. Temporary bus stops will be in place at either end of the high street.

Whilst we anticipate no issues, there may be small pockets of disruption owing to traffic levels around the high street at busy times.

 

Service 17/X17 - Middlesbrough to Kingsmead

The planned road closures in place on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evening will result in the following journey revisions;

  • Service X17, 17:00 from Middlesbrough will be required to terminate at The Spital and will be unable to serve Yarm High Street, Eaglescliffe or Kingsmead (Tuesday ONLY).
  • Service X17, 17:25 from Middlesbrough will be unable to serve south of Yarm and will operate non-stop between Sober Hall and Eaglescliffe to Kingsmead.
  • Service X17, 17:45 from Middlesbrough will be required to terminate at The Spital and will be unable to serve Yarm High Street, Eaglescliffe or Kingsmead.
  • Service 17, 18:15 from Middlesbrough will be unable to serve south of Yarm and will operate non-stop between Sober Hall and Eaglescliffe to Kingsmead.

 

On Saturday 17th, Service 17 will operate as normal until around 11:00. After this time, a dedicated shuttle bus will be in operation between Kingsmead, Eaglescliffe and Yarm, connecting with the usual Service 17 bus on The Spital.

A similar arrangement will apply in the opposite direction, in which the shuttle bus will await the arrival of the Service 17 bus on The Spital and will allow passengers to continue their journey.

  • Service 17, 18:15 from Middlesbrough will be unable to serve south of Yarm and will operate non-stop between Sober Hall and Eaglescliffe to Kingsmead.
