FOR STUDENTS TRAVELLING ON HALTON TRANSPORT BUS NUMBERS 43, 14A/14C, 61/61A AND 62
- Diversion on service 43 and 61 on 30th and 31st October:
We have been informed that Halton Road in Runcorn will be closed for two days on the 30th and 31st October. This will mean that Services 43 and 61 will not be able to serve this road and will instead operate via the Daresbury Expressway. Any students from Halton Road will be able to pick up the 43 or the 62 from the Old Town end of Halton Road where the services come from Picton Avenue.
- Enhanced service 14A and 14C:
Services 14A and 14C are being enhanced to provide a combined 10 minute frequency between Hough Green, Widnes (Kingsway Campus), and direct to Castlefields, Murdishaw and Windmill Hill. This will provide a fast and frequent link between Widnes and Runcorn New Town.
- Changes to timetables on the 61/61A and NEW 61C Service:
Service 61 (Widnes – Farnworth – Huyton – Liverpool) and Service 61A (Runcorn – Widnes – Farnworth – Huyton) are being merged with the overlapping section removed; this will reduce the daytime frequency between Widnes and Huyton from every 15 to 30 minutes. Timings of journeys to and from Runcorn have been adjusted please see the Halton Transport website.
New 61C: Halton Transport have added an extra journey as a 61C from outside Cronton College at 16:20pm to Runcorn to enhance the afternoon service.
