Starbeck Crossing closure this weekend


Engineering works are taking place overnight this weekend on the railway at Starbeck Crossing. Some of our buses on the 1 will be affected on Saturday night and through into Sunday morning.

The crossing will be closed from 10pm on Saturday (22 April), until 8am on Sunday. 

Heading out of Harrogate during this time, buses on the 1 will run along their normal route until they reach the Empress roundabout, close to the hospital. From here, buses will run non-stop along Wetherby Road and Hookstone Chase, before rejoining the normal route on the other side of the Starbeck Crossing at Forest Lane Head.

Buses running from Knaresborough to Harrogate will use the reverse of this route. This means that if you normally get on the bus at either The Avenue or Starbeck High Street, you'll need to walk to either Forest Lane Head or the stop outside our bus depot to catch your bus. 

If you're travelling between Harrogate and Starbeck, we'll have a shuttle bus running every 20 minutes between Harrogate bus station and the stop outside our depot at Starbeck Crossing.

We're sorry for any inconvenience this might cause. Follow and tweet us @harrogatebus for the latest.
