ALTERED SERVICES DUE TO RINGWOOD AREA MAJOR ROAD-WORKS
There are major roadworks in the Ringwood area (A31/A338 confluence), from January 2022 - lasting until the Winter of 2022/23. As a result, Morebus routes in the Ringwood area are affected (as of 4th January, 2022) - and as two of them run through West Moors ( X6, 38 ), timetables have been altered to allow for possible delays/diversions.
Broadly, journey times have been lengthened to account for possible delays, especially where a vehicle has to transit the Ringwood / A338 / A31 confluence of roads. As well as somewhat longer journey times, individual timings, where they've changed, are some 5 to 10 minutes LATER than heretofore. Always check the timetables carefully. Note also that in the summer, no doubt other traffic delays will come into play!The Morebus web site gives more detail and revised timetables.
The summary timetables on this web site have been updated.
