The A4 route will return to normal this evening. The diversion that has meant the A4 service has not been serving Hengrove/Hartcliffe from 18:00 in the evenings will no longer be in place.
Please note that the Hengrove Leisure Park bus stop is still suspended due to roadworks.
Please note that all journeys this evening departing Bath and Bristol Airport from 18:00 onward will not be serving Airport road between Wells Road and Hartcliffe Roundabout.
