Due to a long term road closure at Waungron (just north of Grovesend), Swansea Council had been providing a local bus service between Gorseinon and Pontarddulais numbered 16X) to cover the section of First Cymru’s Service 16 between Grovesend and Pontarddulais, and vice versa. Unfortunately, Service 16X had to be suspended on 20/11/2020 due to an emergency road closure.
However, the service will be resuming from Monday 30th November, although it will be taking a different route. Instead of operating via Grovesend, it’ll be operating via Penllergaer and Pontlliw, and vice versa. In addition, the section of route via Glanffrwd is having to be withdrawn because of the additional time that’ll be required to operate via the revised route.
The revised route is as follows:
From Gorseinon Bus Station via West Street, Gorseinon High Street, Gorseinon Road, A4240, A48, Swansea Road, Bryntirion Road, Bolgoed Road, (forward: St Teilo Street; return: Water Street, Dulais Road).
