The latest information on your local services
On Sunday 9th September, there will be resurfacing works going on at the junction of Manchester Road and Holden Road in Leigh (outside the Bowling Green pub).
Because of this, the 126 will not be able to serve any stops between Butts Bridge and Astley Straits, and instead will be diverted via Warrington Road, East Lancs Road and Higher Green Lane in both directions.
Apologies for the short notice, but we have been trying to find alternative route for the bus to go, but due to the location of the works, this cannot happen, unfortunately.
If you have any questions, please get in touch, either on Facebook, or by calling 01942 888893.

Journeys into the City Centre are unaffected.
Updates will be posted as and when any further information comes through.
