will provide a service for Worting Road & Winchester Road customers, running every 30 minutes between 0730 and 1830, on weekdays and 0830 and 1800
Jayson Smith, Operations Manager for Stagecoach in Basingstoke, said: “Unfortunately the location of the road works has a major impact on the routing of our services at the top end of town. As a result we have worked hard to make sure that customers who rely on our local services are still able to travel with us with as little disruption as possible.
The provision of a shuttle bus will help us maintain a service for customers in Worting Road and Winchester Road."
