Services have moved over to the interim bus station a day earlier than planned, as the portacabin was moved yesterday, and the wooden boards painted.

From Monday 16th October, the interim bus station will close. Changes to the plans with Arch and Northumberland County Council see that Ashington will no longer have a 'proper' bus station.

From first bus on Monday 16th October, two new bus stops opposite Poundstretcher will open.  
Information from Arriva regarding the closure:

Service 1 towards Blyth (services from Widdrington/Cresswell/Wansbeck Hospital) will now depart from Woodhorn Road, outside of Sports Direct (current 35 to Morpeth stand)

Service 1 towards Blyth (services that start from Ashington) will now depart from Stand G (current 35 to Woodhorn stand). 

Service 1 to Wansbeck Hospital/Cresswell/Widdrington will now depart from Woodhorn Road, outside of Select Conveniences.  

All other services will depart from the new bus stops outside Poundstretcher, on both sides of the road.

Wednesday the 18th is the new provisional date for the closure of the bus station.

Monday 23rd October is the day of the closure.

The 19 and 434 will leave from the existing Poundstretcher stops, accessing them via the new road.
