Preston Bus have confirmed their plans for two services during the closure of a major road in Fulwood.


The 23 and 88 services both use Black Bull Lane which is due to be closed for a fortnight.

Lancashire County Council is undertaking resurfacing work for the pothole-ridden road.

The closure is due to be from the Conway Drive junction to Garstang Road by the Black Bull pub.

It will be shut from 8am on Sunday 14 October through to 6pm on Tuesday 30 October.

A spokeswoman for Preston Bus confirmed to Blog Preston that stops on Black Bull Lane will not be served during the closure, except those passed by the 88 on its diversion route.

23, outbound from the bus station, normal route to Plungington Road, then Lytham Road, Garstang Road, Sharoe Green Lane, normal route once more. Inbound to the bus station, reverse of this route.

88, from Larches, normal route to Cadley Causeway, then right onto Black Bull Lane, Lytham Road, Garstang Road, Sharoe Green Lane and normal route. From RPH back to Larches, reverse of above route.
