Bus arrangements during roadworks
The arrangements for buses during the next week’s roadworks have been confirmed.
While Wisbech Road is closed during the day for resurfacing, the Stagecoach bus will call at stops east of the closure (Wisbech side) and then turn around to leave the village towards Wisbech; then travel on to Peterborough via the bypass.
The X1 will stop at the lay-by on the eastern section of the bypass and a shuttle bus will carry people to and from that temporary stop to the regular stops in the village. This will operate throughout the closure times.
People should not go directly to the bypass lay-by, but wait at the regular stops.
Steve Allen, councillor representing Thorney on Peterborough City Council, said contractors would do all they could to ensure the work was completed quickly (possibly less than the five days scheduled) and during closures a banksman would be on hand to direct traffic.
