Monday, October 08 2018

Please be aware that Stoneham Lane near Market Buildings in Swaythling will be closed for 7 weeks for traffic light upgrades, affecting Bluestar 2 and Unilink U2C.

Bluestar 2

Bluestar 2 towards Southampton (which will already be diverting due to the Stoneham Lane closure at the Eastleigh end) will divert from Stoneham Lane / Concorde Club, and will run via the M27 J5 roundabout and Stoneham Way to re-join normal route from Swaythling McDonalds.

Bluestar 2 will do the same in reverse.

The 15:10 Bluestar 2 service from Leaside Way to Southampton, will run via Bassett Green Road, left on to Stoneham Way, around the M27 J5 roundabout and come back down Stoneham Way, to rejoin normal route from Swaythling McDonalds.

Unilink U2C

U2C will divert from Lobelia Road / Poppy Road, turning left onto Bassett Green Road to Chilworth Roundabout, and via Bassett Avenue and Burgess Road to Highfield Interchange.
