Queen Square bus station resurfacing – changes to services

Resurfacing works on the carriageway of Queen Square bus station will commence on Sunday 24 January 2016, affecting passengers travelling in and out of the city centre.

The first phase of the work will affect the ‘downhill’ carriageway of the bus station. During this phase, stands 9-12 and the alighting stop (outside the Royal Court Theatre) will be out of use.

Bus services that normally call at these stands will drop off passengers at the Whitechapel alighting stop and pick up passengers at a temporary bus stop on Victoria St car park. These include the following numbers going to the following destinations:

47 – Crossens

53 – Crosby

300 – Southport

310 – Skelmersdale

345 – Waddicar

838 – Liverpool Freeport (Seaforth)

X2 – Southport/Preston

With the Queen Square bus station ‘alighting only’ bus stop out of use, services coming into the bus station to drop off passengers will also be affected. The list of services below will tell you where your bus will stop on the way into the city centre:
