Major Disruption To Bus Services In Inverness

11 Sep 2015

  • Re-surfacing of General Booth Road
Bus passengers in Inverness have been advised to allow extra time for their commute from Tuesday 15th September. 

All traffic in Inverness has been affected by heavy congestion and temporary traffic lights since May and with the Ness Bridge having one lane closed this is adding to the heavy congestion within the city centre. 

Stagecoach have today warned passengers to allow extra time for their journeys by bus from Tuesday 15th of September when major re-surfacing works are to commence on General Booth Road. The level of road works and restrictions within the city will cause services crossing the city to be subject to severe delays - in particular services 8/8A/8C. 

With only 7 days notice of the work to commence on General Booth Road the bus operator is unable to produce emergency timetables to use during this time. 

Steve Walker, Managing Director for Stagecoach North Scotland said: "We'd like to reassure customers we're doing everything possible to keep your bus running on time. As well as working with the local authority to try and reduce the impact of the road works to the bus network, we will be using spare buses to lessen the impact of any late running and delays.

We would like to thank our passengers for their patience at this time and apologise for any inconvenience caused by the road works."
