The closure will happen again from the night of Monday 1st April until the morning of Friday 5th April. This is taking place for resurfacing between 1900 and 0600 each night, for a total of 8 nights.
As the only suitable diversion is via the A38, Liskeard and the A390, service 12 will be affected as follows:
The 1917 from Launceston will divert from Callington at 1950 via the A390, Liskeard Charter Way and A38 to Carkeel Roundabout, then it will follow its normal route to Royal Parade, arriving up to 30 minutes later than scheduled.
The 1905, 2035 and 2305 services from Plymouth Royal Parade will operate the normal route to Carkeel Roundabout then via the A38, Liskeard Charter Way and the A390 and will terminate in Callington at 2015, 2145 and 0015.
Services will then depart Callington at 2020 and 2150 and will operate via the A390, Liskeard Charter Way and the A38 to Carkeel Roundabout, where they will then follow the normal route to Royal Parade.
As a result, the last bus to serve Launceston will be the 1805 from Royal Parade.
