Last edited 28 Jul 2017 — PUBLISHING

From 11.00 p.m. on Wednesday, 2 August 2017 to 5.00 a.m. on Thursday, 3 August 2017, the stretch of North Bridge Road between Coleman Street and High Street will be closed to facilitate the demolition of a pedestrian overhead bridge near The Adelphi.

As such, bus services 32, 61, 63, 80, 124, 145, 166, 174, 195, 197, 851, and 961 will be amended to Coleman Street, Hill Street, and High Street. The bus stop 04249 Opposite The Treasury will be skipped.

Fares: Service 61 charges regular Basic Bus Service Distance fares.

 

Service 61 is a lengthy inter-town trunk route that connects residential, suburban and city areas. Despite its great length, it does not ply any highways, making its distance the longest covered by any bidirectional trunk route.

The service shuttles commuters in and out of the City with many other alternative routes, including the Circle Line. Owing to its lengthy route and the absence of downroute departures, buses arrive at their destination at around 7 a.m. and therefore cannot benefit commuters travelling short distances.

Demand for this service is spread evenly and shuttles commuters for short distances at various points of the route. It is also the sole service at Commonwealth Drive and its surrounding housing estates.
