GEORGE NEWS - The Go George bus service will be rerouting several routes to accommodate
construction work in Market Street near the intersection with York Street this Sunday, 20 September, between 07:00 and 15:00.
All the routes into town from Pacaltsdorp (Route 1A, 1B, 60 and 60), Route 2 Blanco-CBD (direction towards Blanco), Route 53 Rosemoor-CBD, and Route 56 Denneoord-CBD (both directions) will be impacted.
The Pacaltsdorp routes into town will use the normal route, but going back to Pacaltsdorp, the buses will depart from the Mispel stops and turn left into Cradock Street, right into Victoria Street and left into York Street.
Passengers normally using bus stop Market 554 in front of the Old Town Hall in York Street, are advised to use the Mispel stops near the Transport Hub or any other convenient stop.
The forward route 56 that travels along Market Street when departing from the Hub, will take the same divergence as the Pacaltsdorp routes along Cradock and Victoria Streets, but will turn right into York Street to proceed on the normal route.
The reverse route that normally turns into Market Street from York Street towards the Transport Hub, will take an earlier turn into Hibernia Street.
Passengers normally using bus stop York C 866B opposite the Protea Pharmacy in Market Street, are advised to use an alternative stop.
Route 2 towards Blanco from the CBD will also travel along Victoria Street to York Street, turn right and proceed on the normal route to Blanco.
Route 53, travelling towards the Transport Hub, will turn left into Hibernia Street from York Street, right into Meade Street, left into Market Street and then to the Hub.
Passengers normally using bus stop York C 866A next to the Protea Pharmacy in Market Street are advised to use an alternative stop.
Go George apologises for the inconvenience and appeals to road users to be patient and exercise caution near roadworks and bus stops.
