Bus Route In Weymouth Saved
8:59am 21st March 2013
Damory has stepped in to save a bus route in Weymouth.
The bus operator will divert its Bridport to Weymouth service and change timetables to ensure residents in Southill aren't left stranded.
Damory's been working with the County Council after the previous operator announced they were pulling the route in Southill.
The revised service will operate via Radipole Lane to Southill, then Field Barn Drive, The Rise, Chafeys Avenue, Field Barn Drive, Goldcroft Road and Newstead Road. The revised route will still provide key links from the area to Asda.
Simon Newport, Operations Manager at Damory, says that he is pleased to be able to re-route their 253 Bridport to Weymouth service from Monday 25th March which currently operates direct to Weymouth via Chickerell Road and Abbotsbury Road.
"We hope that this lifeline daily service to Southill will prove popular," said Simon.
