The diversion route that will be enforced while a building connected to Greyfriars bus station is demolished has been revealed.

Lady’s Lane will be closed between 7pm on Friday January 23 and 6am on Monday January 26 while a bridge over the carriageway, and a tower it is connected to, are removed.

While this work is completed, Sheep Street will be closed from Greyfriars to Lady’s Lane.

Lady’s Lane itself will be closed to traffic from Sheep Street to Victoria Street.

Diversions for motorists will see them directed left down Sheep Street, right down Church Lane and then right again down Victoria Street.

It means National Express coaches should be able to exit Victoria Street as normal.

The demolition of the Greyfriars bus station itself will take place before the end of March this year.
