Travel advice from Cardiff Bus ahead of Remembrance Sunday

People traveling on Remembrance Sunday are getting travel advice from Cardiff Bus.

The operator is alerting travellers to road closures and route diversions as a result of Remembrance Sunday services this weekend.

At 11am Cardiff Bus will also see its services pull over where safe to do so, in a bid to observe the traditional two-minute silence honouring the fallen.

Road closures for the Radyr Remembrance Sunday service will affect service 63.  Service 63 will not serve Radyr, Pentyrch or Creigiau in either direction and will start and end its journeys at Danescourt Way.  The first bus to serve the whole route will be the 12:55 from the city centre.

In addition to this, service 63 may be held near Pentyrch memorial for a short time at about 3pm.

There will also be changes to Whitchurch services 21, 23, 24 & 25 as Penlline Road will be closed between 10:30 and 12:00.  During this time buses will divert along Church Road, Heol Don and Velindre Road in both directions.

Service 30 will also be affected between Old St Mellons and Rumney with buses diverting via Cypress Drive, Greenway Road and New Road in both directions between 11:30 and 12:40 due to the part closure of Newport Road.

Service 45 will divert in Rumney via Wentloog Road and New Road for approximately 30 mins from 10:45 due to a Remembrance service on Wentloog Road.

Traffic around the Cenotaph in Barry may be held for a short time around 11:00, and in Penarth at approximately 14:00 affecting Barry & Penarth services 92, 94, 95, 96A and 100.

Gareth Stevens, Operations and Commercial Director of Cardiff Bus, said:

“This Remembrance Day we once again honour the courageous men and women who fought for our country.

“It is our privilege to play a part in supporting them during Remembrance Sunday by observing a two-minute silence where possible. We hope our customers will join us and pause to remember and honour those who have been lost in action.”
