SOUTHERN VECTIS’ BUS ARRANGEMENTS DURING WROXALL’S GAS MAIN RENEWAL WORKS

Published at:

Southern Vectis have announced their operational plans during the closure of the main road through Wroxall while a new gas main is installed by SGN. 

As previously reported by Island Echo, St John’s Road in Wroxall will be closed to motorists whilst essential gas main renewal works are carried out from Monday 18th January for 10 weeks.

St John’s Road will be closed for the whole duration, along with Redhill Lane at its junction with Appuldurcombe Road. This is to prevent motorists from circumnavigating the closure locally.

During this time Route 3 buses will divert from Godshill via Whitwell to Ventnor, and customers wishing to travel to Wroxall should change at Albert Street in Ventnor connecting with a shuttle bus which will follow the standard 3 route to terminate in Wroxall at the junction of Station Road and St Martins Road.

Customers in Upper Ventnor can use Route 3 to/from Ocean View Road, a short walk away, or use the shuttle bus to go into Ventnor for onward travel.

The following bus stops will not be served on any journeys:

  • Appuldurcombe
  • St Johns Road
  • Donkey Sanctuary

Customers using Route 3 from stops between Whiteley Bank and Godshill Griffin should use Route 2 instead.

Customers using Route 3 from Godshill School should use either Route 2 from Godshill School or Route 3 from Jubilee Close stops in West Street.

How is the No 3 supposed to get through Whitwell, the Whitwell to Godshill road is also to be closed for some of this time?

The diversion for Whitwell is down Beacon Alley, hope I don’t meet a double decker coming the opposite way.

I emailed southern vectis to inform them of this and just got a reply saying here is the diversion route and it was the same one via whitwell! Don’t think they know what they are doing!

No idea why the bus can’t serve Upper Ventnor and turn round at St Francis school like the school buses do. Hope there is going to be access to properties and emergency services when they shut the full width of the road!!
