Newcastle city centre bus changes

City Council and Supercars have advised that Watt Street will need to remain closed for longer than initially expected due to unavoidable delays. Plans to relocate buses off Hunter Street ahead of light rail construction have been delayed by two weeks due to complications relating to engineering and construction work on Watt Street. Bus relocations scheduled for 27 August will now occur on Sunday 10 September 2017.

From Sunday 10 September 2017, there will be bus stop changes in the Newcastle city centre to prepare for the start of light rail construction works.

Buses will be diverted off Hunter and Scott streets, and onto King Street or Honeysuckle Drive and Wharf Road. Fourteen bus stops will be closed and replaced with 15 stops along the new routes.

Signage is in place at closed stops with more information on where the nearest replacement stops are located. Over the first few days of the change there will also be people on the ground during peak times to assist you with your travel plans.

You can also use the Trip Planner or transport apps to plan your journey.
