Gorleston High Street Diverts

With Anglian Water carrying out further excavation work, Gorleston High Street is currently closed between Back Chapel Lane and Trafalgar Road East. This means all bus services are being excluded from using the High Street and are instead traveling via Beccles Road and Church Road to resume their usual the roundabout next to Gorleston Parish Church.

Yesterday I wandered along Church Road to get some photos and First's Wright Eclipse Gemini 37024 YJ06 XKN passed me on its way to Great Yarmouth (and ultimately Norwich) on the X1 Coastlink service

Unmistakeably heading in the opposite direction was First Ipswich branded Volvo B7RLE 66987 KX05 MHV on the 8 to the James Paget Hospital

It was noticeable that a significant number of the type were in use on the route with three of the South Yorkshire contingent being observed including latest arrival 69045 SF55 UBE heading for Caister. Mainline liveried 69017 was also out earlier in the day on the 6 to Bradwell.

Coastlink branded Enviro400s were also out in force on the divert as this photo of 33814 Y63LKC shows of it on the X1 to Lowestoft.

The diversions are expected to be in place until 6th November
