Round Up

Trident 326 has left the paint shop - the 16th of the 40 strong fleet treated to the new livery. Olympian 369 has replaced it - its not yet known if this will be the first step entrance bus in the new livery.

Further diversions currently sees Highfield Road closed with the 5 and 16 serving St. Lukes Road between St. Annes Road and Lytham Road. It is also closed between Highfield Hotel and Midgeland Road in that direction only. The 16 diverts via Hawes Side Lane, Daggers Hall Lane and Vicarage Lane. The 10's loop is reversed via School Road, Midgeland Road and Hawes Side Lane.

Finally Ansdell Road is closed in one direction sending the 14 and 17 via Bloomfield Road, Central Drive and Waterloo Road.
