Lambwath Road regains bus service

Lambwath Road in Hull regains a bus service from Monday 9th March, as EYMS operated service 50 between Hull Interchange, Laburnum Avenue, James Reckitt Avenue, Jalland Lodge and Morrisons and Holderness Road is re-routed at the request of Hull City Council, whom EYMS operate the route under contract too. Service 50 operates Monday to Saturday daytimes to an irregular timetable with 4 journeys from Hull (5 on Sat) and 5 journeys into Hull (6 on Sat) pus one extra 'short' journey.. Lambwath Road has been unserved since the Stagecoach 53 was withdrawn in late August last year after Hull City Council withdrew their funding due to extensive housing demolition in the area. However remaining residents in the area did submit a petition to Hull City Council about their loss of bus services, and this would appear to be the City Council's solution.

The new route will see a small section of James Reckitt Avenue omitted (also served by the 110) in order to serve Lambwath Road and Gillshill Road. As a result the service 50 timetable is revised, with the loss of one journey each way, and a revised timetable for the remaining journeys. The 'short' journey at 0920 from Jalland Lodge to Morrisons is extended to start back at Holderness Road/Mount Pleasant however at 0910 (Jalland Lodge now served at 0930).
