The number 7 bus service route is going to change from this Sunday (1 October) to travel directly via Bowen Road in the Locking Parklands estate.
The route has been amended this week after discussions with local residents and the Locking Parklands site developer who requested the change.
The number 7 service will continue to run 7 days a week, running every 20 minutes during weekdays, every 30 minutes on Saturdays, every 60 minutes on Sundays and every 60 minutes each evening.
This change will mean the service is rerouted from Farmborough Road, Chamberlain Road and Cranwell Road on the Locking Parklands estate to instead travel via Bowen Road.
The bus stop that was on Cranwell road will also be moved across to Nicholson Road which is situated after the Bowen Road Junction. There are plans to add more bus stops within the Locking Parklands estate as discussions with the site developer continue.
As new communities are built, routes and frequency of bus services will be refined over time. Balancing the location and accessibility of bus stops ensures that the integration of public transport provides fair access for residents to local facilities.
