Sections of York Street and Park Road (behind the Eden Meander shopping centre) will be closed, resulting in rerouting of the Rosemoor route and the Pacaltsdorp routes coming into town via York Street, as well as one-direction service on the Denneoord and City Loop routes.

The changes can be summarised as follows:

Routes 1A New Dawn Park – CBD, 1B Harmony Park – CBD, 60 Rosedale – CBD, 60A Syferfontein/Rosedale – CBD

Sunday 18 Feb, 08:00 – 11:00

Normal route up to Stanmar Motors, right into PW Botha Boulevard, left into Rand Street, left into Hope Street, right into York Street at circle – normal route to CBD.  Return route will follow same diversion until it reaches Stanmar Motors, turning left towards Pacaltsdorp and normal from there onwards.

Alternative stops: For passengers who normally use the Hope 111 and Discovery 114 stops in York Street, please use York B 110 (instead of Hope 111) and Main 113 (instead of Discovery 114), around the corner from your usual stops.

Route 53 Rosemoor – CBD

Sunday 18 Feb, 06:00 – 13:00

Departing from the Garden Route Mall, this route will travel via Knysna Road, thus skipping the two Eden Meander stops 20 and 21 in Park Road, turn left into St George’s Road at CTM, and right into Park Road, following the normal route through Protea Park and Rosemoor to town. Passengers normally using these two closed stops, are advised to use the Rosemoor stop at the Garden Route Mall. 

Routes 56 Denneoord and 13 City Loop

Saturday from 15:00 – 11:00 on Sunday

Due to single-lane traffic for preparation and practice purposes, these two routes will only follow the forward (clockwise) route during this time.

Delays

Delays must be expected on all routes, due to single lane traffic from 15:00 on Saturday 17 February (for preparation and practice runs), until 13:00 on Sunday 18 February 2018. GO GEORGE advises passengers to take an earlier bus to ensure being on time for work.

Minimal disruption of traffic is expected, thanks to single-lane traffic being instituted for most of the marathon route and minimal road closures. Motorists are kindly requested to be patient and alert when driving behind buses, since there will not be a lane available to overtake buses stopping at bus stops.

Phone the GO GEORGE Call Centre on 0800 044 044 ahead of time for help with alternative trip planning.


Busroetes aangepas vir rolstoelmarathon 

Die GO GEORGE-busdiens sal tydelike aanpassings maak aan sekere roetes om die Outeniqua-rolstoelmarathon wat Sondag, 18 Februarie 2018, plaasvind, te akkommodeer. 

Gedeeltes van Yorkstraat en Parkweg (agter die Eden Meander-inkopiesentrum) sal gesluit wees met gevolglike herleiding van die Rosemoor-roete en die Pacaltsdorp-roetes wat via Yorkstraat inry dorp toe, asook eenrigting diens op die Denneoord- en City Loop-roetes.

Die veranderings kan so opgesom word:   

Roetes 1A New Dawn Park – CBD, 1B Harmony Park – CBD, 60 Rosedale – CBD, 60A Syferfontein/Rosedale to CBD

Sondag 18 Feb, 08:00 – 11:00

Normale roete tot by Stanmar Motors, regs in PW Botha Boulevard, links in Randstraat, links in Hopestraat, regs in Yorkstraat by die sirkel – normale roete tot in middedorp.  Die roete terug Pacaltsdorp toe loop dieselfde, net omgekeerd.

Alternatiewe bushaltes: Passasiers wat gewoonlik die Hope 111- en Discovery 114-bushaltes in Yorkstraat gebruik, kan York B 110 (pleks van Hope 111) en Main 113 (pleks van Discovery 114) net om die hoek gebruik.

Route 53 Rosemoor – CBD

Sondag 18 Feb 06:00 – 13:00

Dié roete vertrek steeds by die Garden Route Mall, maar ry dan met Knysnaweg langs en slaan dus die twee Eden Meander-haltes 20 en 21 in Parkweg oor, draai links in St Georgestraat by CTM, regs in Parkweg, en dan voort op die normale roete dorp toe deur Proteapark en Rosemoor. Passasiers wat normaalweg hierdie twee geslote haltes gebruik, kan die Rosemoor-halte by die Garden Route Mall gebruik.

Roetes 56 Denneoord en 13 City Loop

Saterdag vanaf 15:00 – Sondag 11:00

Weens enkelbaan-verkeer vir voorbereiding- en oefendoeleindes sal hierdie twee roetes slegs die kloksgewyse roete volg gedurende hierdie tyd.

Vertragings

Passasiers kan vertragings te wagte wees op alle busroetes weens enkelbaan-verkeer van Saterdag 17 Februarie om 15:00 tot Sondag 18 Februarie om 11:00. GO GEORGE beveel aan dat passasiers ’n vroeër bus neem om seker te maak dat hulle betyds by die werk kom.

Minimale ontwrigting van verkeer word verwag danksy enkelbaan-verkeer wat geld vir die grootste gedeelte van die marathonroete en gevolglike minimale padsluitings. Motoriste word vriendelik versoek om geduldig en oplettend te wees wanneer hulle agter busse ry aangesien daar nie nog ’n baan sal wees om ’n bus wat by ’n halte stilhou, verby te steek nie.

Skakel die GO GEORGE-inbelsentrum vooraf by 0800 044 044 vir hulp met alternatiewe ritbeplanning.
