Essential changes to Service 73

1 month ago Thu 5th Aug 2021

The timetable for Service 73 Liskeard-Polperro is being updated from Monday 9th August in order to run a more reliable service following the closure of Sandplace Road in Looe.

The road has been closed due to a dangerous wall, and the diversion now in place is adding an extra 20 minutes onto the journey for Service 73. This obviously has a knock-on effect for all other users of the service.

As this is going to be a long-term disruption, we’ve decided to amend the timetable so you know what buses to expect and when.

To take the diversion into account we have had to reduce the service in places, although we’ve done our best to maintain the service at peak times. The 73 will now stop at Pelynt instead of Polperro, but anyone wanting to continue on can buy a transferable ticket and complete their journey on Service 72.

The work needed to end the road closure is expected to be completed towards the end of October, but no dates have been confirmed yet. We will keep you updated as to any changes and when we’ll be able to reinstate the 73 in full.

Details of the timetable from Monday 9th August are here.
