There is confusion over the closed road

There is a change to bus routes in Queensferry after confusion over the closure of a road.

The public has been left bewildered as BT and Edinburgh council dispute the shutting of Hopetoun Road.

BT wished to carry out work on the street and therefore put up signs alerting the public. However the council did not give BT permission to do so and told them to remove the signs as the road was not going to be shut.

This has led to confusion over the running of public transport in the area and some members of the public have missed their bus because of the confusion.

Stagecoach has announced that the 40 and 40A service will be redirected as a result.

During this time, all journeys will divert via Bo’ness Road, Stewart Terrace and Kirklistion Road in both directions. More information can be found at www.stagecoachbus.com/tis-service-update-details.aspx?id=7145.
