Bus boss confirms Cheswick Link date

At a Lockleaze Forum meeting in late February James Freeman, managing Director of First Bus, confirmed that the Cheswick Bus Link will finally be open by the 30th April,  when the next timetable update is performed and will be a bus lane enforced by two Automatic Number Plate Recognition Cameras. Although we were told that taxis will be allowed to use it we now understand that this is not the case.

Service numbered 72 is the only service that will use the Bus Link. It will begin its journey at the UWE Frenchay Campus, travelling onto Long Mead, Wallshut Wood, Long Down Avenue, Romney Avenue, Gainsborough Square, and down Constable and Lockleaze Roads. It will turn left onto Filton Avenue and onto Gloucester Road and travel as far as Zetland Road. From there it will pass through Cotham eventually going down St Michael’s Hill where it will turn right, going around the Triangle and then down Park Street and across the City Centre, travelling onto Rupert Street, The Haymarket, Bond Street ending its journey at Station Approach on Temple Way.

Ironically the commencement of the service coincides with the Constable Road Bridge works and closures and this service will be re-routed to the 24 route between Filton Avenue and Gainsborough Square.

There are no plans to alter the route of our service numbered 24.
