- (approx) Sunday, 4 September 2022: Routes 4, 35A, 55, 37 & ED4 – Silksworth Road (westbound), East Herrington
From Monday 27 June 2022, for potentially up to 10 weeks, there will be a westbound closure of Silksworth Road in East Herrington.
This closure westbound (towards Durham Road) is for urgent utilities works.
During the period of the road closure, Stagecoach service 4, Go North East services 35A, 55, Nexus service 37 and Arriva service ED4 will divert from Doxford Park Way to operate via City Way, A19/A690 roundabout and Durham Road, then normal route at East Herrington Board Inn.
As a result of this diversion, buses will be unable to serve any of their normal bus stops along Silksworth Road. They will however, observe bus stops along the line of their diversion.
- Monday, 15 August 2022: Routes 6, 7, 87, X87 and X88 – Trevelyan Drive, Newbiggin Hall
Between Thursday 4 and Monday 15 August 2022, there will be a series of road closures along Trevelyan Drive, restricting bus access to Newbiggin Hall. These road closures are for essential resurfacing works, and due to the poor condition of the road and subsurface, and to ensure health and safety is maintained while the works are undertaken, cannot be completed without complete road closures in the off-peak period. These road closures are scheduled to be in place on the following dates, between approx. 09:30am and 3: 30 each day: Thursday 4, Friday 5, Monday 8, Tuesday 9, Wednesday 10, Thursday 11, Friday 12, and Monday 15 August 2022. Roads will be open as normal outside these periods, including morning peak, afternoon peak, and at all times during evenings and weekends.
On the second phase of the works, the Etal Lane junction will be open to buses. However, Trevelyan Drive will remain closed. This phase will apply on Friday 5 August, Monday 8 August, Wednesday 10 August, Thursday 11 August, Friday 12 August and Monday 15 August 2022, between approximately 09:30am and 3:30pm. During this phase, Stagecoach services 6, 7, 87, X87 and X88 will be required to operate as follows:
Services 6 and 7 will operate as normal along Stamfordham Road, Newbiggin Lane and Bedeburn Road, then divert via Newbiggin Lane (central section), Trevelyan Drive (southern side), rejoining normal routes on Etal Lane. Buses will operate the reverse of this diversion when heading in the opposite direction. As a result, buses will be unable to serve any stops along Trevelyan Drive, but will observe all stops along the diversion.
Services 87 will operate as normal along Stamfordham Road, Newbiggin Lane and Bedeburn Road, returning to Newcastle City Centre via Newbiggin Lane (central section) to Stamfordham Road, and rejoining normal route. As a result, buses will be unable to serve any stops along Trevelyan Drive. Buses will however, observe a temporary southbound stop on Newbiggin Lane, near Sovereign Lodge Care Home.
Services X87 and X88 will operate as normal along Cragston Avenue and Etal Lane. All buses will then turn left and operate via the southern side of Trevelyan Drive, Newbiggin Lane and then clockwise around Bedeburn Road. Buses will then return to Newcastle City Centre via Bedeburn Road and Newbiggin Lane (central section), Trevelyan Drive (southern side), and rejoining normal routes on Etal Lane. As a result, buses will be unable to serve any stops along Trevelyan Drive. Buses will however, observe a temporary southbound stop on Newbiggin Lane, near Sovereign Lodge Care Home. Customers should also note that all buses on Services X87, X88 during the road closure period will run clockwise around the Bedeburn Road loop (as this will enable a higher frequency to be offered to customers from the east side of the estate, who will have walked to the temporary stop near Sovereign Lodge).

- UPDATE: Newcastle Pilgrim Street Closure – Bus Stop Changes
From Monday 8 August 2022, Pilgrim Street will reopen to NORTHBOUND buses (Stagecoach 1, 10, 11, 30, 31, 35, 38, X24A, X34 and Go North East QA and QB) operating in both directions. However, the southbound bus stops on Pilgrim Street will remain suspended.
At the same time, Market Street East will need to be temporarily closed in both directions between its junctions with Pilgrim Street and John Dobson Street. Passengers for Go North East 1, 27, 51, 56, 57, 58, 91, 97, N21 and Stagecoach 22/22X should board at bus stops in Market Street West and Grainger Street.
These revised arrangements require some temporary bus stop changes in the local area – please see attached map for further details.
From Monday 16 May 2022, for approximately 7 weeks, Pilgrim Street will be completely closed in both directions between its junctions with New Bridge Street West and Market Street.
The eastbound bus stop on Market Street East will also be suspended from this date.
This closure will require some temporary bus stop changes in the local area.

- Sunday, 14 August 2022: Route 1 – Benfield Road/Coast Road Overbridge, Newcastle upon Tyne
From Monday 8 August 2022 for around six consecutive nights, the Benfield Road / Coast Road overbridge will be closed during evening and overnight periods for bridge inspections between 7:00pm and 7:00am.
During the bridge closure, northbound Stagecoach Service 1 buses will divert from Benfield Road via Coast Road to Chillingham Road roundabout, and then return via Coast Road to Red Hall Drive, where they will re-join their normal routes.
Southbound Service 1 buses will divert from Red Hall Drive via Coast Road to Wallsend Station Road roundabout, and then return via Coast Road to Benfield Road, where they will re-join their normal routes.
These diversions will be operated on a non-stop basis, buses may be subject to some delays due to the additional mileage they will need to operate.
- Tuesday, 23 August 2022: Routes 11 & X20 – Leam Lane (Eastbound)/Calf Close Lane/Lindisfarne Roundabout, Jarrow
On the evenings of Monday 22 and Tuesday 23 August, Leam Lane will be closed eastbound between Calf Close Lane (Prince of Wales roundabout) and Lindisfarne Roundabout, and this will affect evening trips on eastbound Stagecoach Services 11 and X20. From approximately 08:00pm on the affected evenings, Service 11 and X20 buses will operate via normal routes as far as Roman Road, but will then divert via Hedworth Lane underpass, Hedworth Lane and A19, re-joining normal routes at the A19 Lindisfarne Roundabout.
As a result of this closure, eastbound Service 11 and X20 buses will be unable to serve their normal stops on Roman Road between the Hedworth Lane underpass and Lindisfarne Roundabout. Whilst the diversion will be undertaken on a non-stop basis, buses will temporarily observe the bus stop on the underpass, in lieu of the suspended bus stop outside Vespa.
As a consequence of the diversion, buses may be subject to some delays due to the additional mileage they will need to operate. Westbound trips on Services 10 and X20 should be unaffected.
