Road Closure in Wilsden Affecting School Bus Services

We have received this message today from the School Bus company:

Good afternoon,

You may be aware of the full closure of Haworth Road from the Wilsden ‘Ling Bob’ roundabout to Back Lane which starts this weekend to the 28th November.

For your reference, full details of diversions to some school services are published here:

The main issue in working out diversions has been the fact that there are a limited number of ways around the works given the rural nature of the area and this will mean that some sections of some routes cannot be served. The only local roads around the works are unclassified roads which have overhanging trees – single deck buses can get around but double decks run the risk of the branches damaging the upper saloon wind screen (this has been route tested). In summary:

Bingley Grammar: S30 single deck will divert via Back Lane and Old Allen Road to re-join the usual route from Lane Side. S32 will start at Lane Side not Haworth Road/Windy Grove.

We will, of course, monitor how this is going once the amended buses are in operation.
