Services X9, X10 and 35A at Felling bypass

X9 & X10

Major roadworks are planned on Felling bypass between Whitemare Pool and Heworth Interchange from Tuesday 10 October.

This has the potential to cause significant delays to services. To ensure services X9 and X10 continue to run reliably, they will not serve Testo's roundabout towards Newcastle for the duration of the roadworks - which is expected to be around 6 months.

Journeys towards Middlesbrough are unaffected. 

35A

To minimise disruption for the majority of passengers, some journeys on service 35A will no longer operate to Heworth Interchange during the works. These journeys are:

  • Monday to Friday journeys at 7.57am and 5.23pm from Boldon Cinema to Heworth will now terminate at Boldon Cinema
  • Monday to Friday journeys at 8.20am and 5.42pm from Heworth will now commence from Boldon Cinema
