Tram Replacement at Bispham

Trident 324 at Beach Road in Cleveleys on the tram replacement service


Between Monday 4th March and Thursday 7th March, Blackpool Transport were planning to operate a tram replacement bus service between Bispham and Fleetwood in both directions, due to essential welding work taking place on the track. On Tuesday 5th March welding work was taking place at the loop at Little Bispham, although work was completed by mid afternoon allowing the through tram service to Fleetwood to recommence at 1445. Southbound tram replacement buses operated around a loop at Bispham, via Red Bank Road, Warbreck Drive, Cavendish Road, then north along Queen's Promenade to drop off passengers adjacent to the southbound tram platform at Bispham. Northbound tram passengers alighting at Bispham caught the replacement bus at the regular bus stop just north of Red Bank Road traffic lights.
