B999 & B9000 CLOSURE – BUS ISSUE ANSWERS – 4th JULY 2016

The closure of the B999 and B9000 at the centre of Pitmedden from the 4th July

Local Councillor Paul Johnston has forwarded this to PNews following concerns about bus disruption due the Closure of the B999 and B9000 with road works from 4th July 2016 for 2 weeks.

Good Morning Councillor Johnston

Thank you for your email.

Following discussions with Local Road, Service 290/291 and 493 will be allowed through the road closure in Pitmedden, except on 3 days which is Wednesday 6th, Monday 11th and Tuesday 12 th July. Buses will still serve Pitmedden but will operate via Hillside and Keithleigh Gardens where there are 4 temporary bus stops, and all journeys will then operate via Udny Green. The service may operate slight delays throughout the closure.

The Service 290/291 and 493 will continue to serve Udny Post Office during these 3 days. Passengers will have to board and alight at the layby outside the coffee shop/Post Office as the bus stops can’t be served. Notices have been displayed at the affected bus stops informing passengers of those 3 days. I have also contacted Wood Recyclability to inform their employees where to board and alight.   

Due to the nature of the works, there may be additional revisions to the bus service through the 2 week closure but we will keep passengers up-to-date.

There is a live link for bus information.


This is a new site and may be subject to a few teething problems, but should give the time for the buses as they are running.  If they are late to each stop, the idea is that the time of arrival at the next stop changes.

Traveline, is helpful generally, but may not always very up to date.
