Purple Line 87 diverted from until 6th August due to gasworks in Redhill. Buses to City using Cross Street.

A major new gas connection is being carried out on the A60 Mansfield Road in the Redhill area, which means we have to divert Purple Line 87 for just over a week. From 08:00 on Sunday 29th July 2012 until approx. 16:30 on Monday 6th August 2012, Purple Line 87 buses from Arnold will be diverted along Cross Street and will not serve Redhill Road or Mansfield Road. Buses to the City will use all stops along Cross Street and customers from Mansfield Road and Redhill can also catch the Purple Line 87 bus towards Arnold and stay on the bus at Arnold Front Street to travel through to the City at no extra cost. The following evening buses (times shown from the Oxclose Lane, Mansfield Road stop) teminate in Arnold and do not return to the City: Mondays to Fridays: 17:49, 18:39, 23:32 Saturdays: 18:39, 23:32 Buses from the City Centre to Arnold are not affected.
