Harrogate to Skipton bus service suspended due to Kex Gill closure

Saturday DalesBus 59 between Harrogate, Bolton Bridge and Skipton has now been suspended.

Harrogate to Skipton bus service suspended due to Kex Gill closure A bus service that connects Harrogate, Bolton Bridge and Skipton has been suspended whilst roadworks take place. The Saturday DalesBus 59 has now been suspended due to the emergency closure of the A59 road at Kex Gill and the start of additional roadworks this week near Burley-in-Wharfedale on the diversionary route. The usual route and timetable will resume when the road reopens. DalesBus 74 will however continue to provide the usual Saturday bus service between York, Harrogate, Otley, Ilkley, Bolton Abbey and Grassington. This bus leaves Harrogate Bus Station every Saturday at 9:25am, returning from Bolton Abbey at 5:25pm.

The road, which is a vital route between Harrogate, Skipton and into the Dales, closed suddenly on February 2nd after a crack appeared in the road.

Cllr Richard Foster (Conservative, Wharefedale) said there had been a new “slippage” on the hill that needs repairing with contractors now on site.
