Lengthy Postwick Park and Ride diversions

The 503 is facing considerable diversions due to A47 closures
It has been requested by a reader of the blog that I dedicate a post to the recent chaos caused by bridge and junction closures at Postwick Junction, which are having a large affect on Norwich Park and Ride service 503. The diversions see buses operate along city roads they otherwise would never operate along. The diversions are expected until early November.

06:40 to 08:35 departures from Postwick Park and Ride
All journeys inclusive of the above are operating to Norwich via the A47 Southern By-Pass to County Hall then on to Norwich Bus Station. Buses then return via this route. As a result, there is no service between Postwick site and Broadland Business Park, Norwich Rail Station and Castle Meadow.

08:50 to 15:00 departures from Postwick Park and Ride
Buses operate from Norwich to County Hall via the A47, then right at Bracondale along Rouen Road, right onto Cattle Market street, then onto Castle Meadow and Norwich Bus Station. Buses then operate back to Postwick Park and Ride as usual. These journeys do not serve Broadland Business Park or Norwich Rail Station on inbound journeys.

County Hall service 512 appears to be unaffected by closures
All journeys after 15:00 from Postwick Park and Ride
These journeys are able to operate the usual evening peak circuit, operating to County Hall via the A47, then through the City Centre returning via Yarmouth Road.

All Saturday journeys
Buses operate from Norwich to County Hall via the A47, then right at Bracondale along Rouen Road, right onto Cattle Market street, then onto Castle Meadow and Norwich Bus Station. Buses then operate back to Postwick Park and Ride as usual. These journeys do not serve Broadland Business Park or Norwich Rail Station on inbound journeys.
