Severn Trent Water will begin 18 weeks of major works to refurbish water pipes in Newark from Monday 19 February 2018, which will limit access to the town centre for all traffic including buses.
Stagecoach East Midlands will be making some changes to Newark town services from 19 February 2018, which are designed to maintain convenient routes into town centre during the works and make using the bus the best choice for local journeys.
Free Shuttle Buses will run around the town centre every 15 minutes, Monday to Saturday, from 0630hrs until 1900hrs; the service is free to users because it is funded by Severn Trent and coordinated by Nottinghamshire County Council using buses provided by Stagecoach, Travel Wright and Marshalls.
