Wolborough Street

From 22nd July until 9th August Wolborough Street will be closed heading into Newton Abbot. Our 176 & 177 services will operate as normal out of Newton Abbot but will return as follows:

176 – return from Denbury via East Street, Chercombe Bridge Road and Ashburton Road.

177 – return from Totnes via A385, A384, A38 and Ashburton Road.

Passengers needing to travel into Newton Abbot on these services will have to board the outbound bus and remain on board. Please note this means catching the previous bus – e.g to catch the 09:10 176 from Denbury you will need to board the 08:45 176 from Newton Abbot.

Stops along the route of the return journeys will not be served due to time constraints.


Road closures due to gas piping work in the village mean School Road and Fore Street are currently closed to traffic. The bus will go into Coles Lane and turn at the Park Inn, then via Newton Road to Barnhill Road and on to Southey Lane.
