Broad Weir stop Sa/S10 will also be available for the picking up and setting down of passengers.

From Temple Gate these services will divert via Redcliffe Way, The Grove, Prince Street, The Centre and Nelson Street before terminating at stop B12 on Union Street (currently called Si).

 

Stops R6/Tu and R8/Bh in Victoria Street and stop B17 in Wine Street (currently called Se) will not be served.
