Maghull – Changes to its circular bus routes and numbers

A 231 circular bus parked in the drop off area of Maghull Station on 28th December 2015. This route will now be numbered 31 from 23rd April.

If you use Maghull’s circular buses be prepared for changes from 23rd of April. Some routes are changing and the numbers of the buses are too.

A visit to the Merseytravel website (see link to timetable below) will show the newly posted timetables.

If I am reading it right the last train from Liverpool is to be met by a No.31 bus (until 23rd this is the 231 route) and it departs at 00:03. This is something I and others have called for over a number of years.

In addition, during school days, the 31 will operate via Eastway rather than Deyes Lane and Damfield Lane. Is this due to congestion outside Maricourt & Deyes High and St. Andrew’s Schools? – I guess it is.

But could be issues with the 231 (now to be 31) serving Liverpool Road down to Robins Island in Lydiate? Residents campaigned for it to serve that part of Lydiate a few years ago.

Also, the 32 & 33 (new numbers) will operate via Green Lane rather than running past the old Library site.

If I have anything wrong here please shout.
