Road Closure – James Street West 28th & 29th January 2017

Bath Bus Company have received notification that James Street West just after the junction with Charles Street will be closed on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th January 2017. As a result of this road closure, the A4 Air Decker service will be unable to serve Kingsmead Square and St James Parade bus stops heading towards Bath City Centre.

Passengers who would normally alight these stops should alight at either Green Park or remain on board the bus until it terminates at Dorchester Street. Journeys from Bath heading towards Bristol Airport will be unaffected

Air Decker first on the New South Bristol Link Road

The A4 Air Decker service, operated by Bath Bus Company, has changed its route this morning to take advantage of the new South Bristol link road which opened today.

The new link road provides a direct link between Whitchurch Road and the A38, whilst also expected to reduce traffic on other residential roads in the area.

The decision to take advantage of the new link road was made to reduce journey times for passengers travelling to and from Bath, Keynsham, South Bristol and Bristol Airport by up to 5 minutes. This change was planned one year ago.

The A4 route will serve the Hareclive Road bus stop, the Queens Road bus stop and the Highridge Green bus stop on the new link road.

The route change allows the A4 service will avoid the congested Bishopsworth and Kings Head Lane areas. However, Bishopsworth residents will have only a short walk to one of the three new stops that will be used on the new link road.

Victoria Annett, Head of Marketing for Bath Bus Company has said “The new link road will effectively cut journey times for those travelling to and from Bristol Airport, which is excellent for both passengers and staff, and residents of Highridge and Withywood will be gaining a reliable and punctual bus service from the A4”.
