1720 Oldham – Dukinfield journey curtailed

From the 28 January 2013, First Greater Manchester’s 1720 journey from Oldham Bus Station to Dukinfield (Albion Hotel/Boyd’s Walk) will be curtailed. Instead of terminating at Dukinfield, which it has done since April 2007, it will instead terminate at Mossley railway station with no change to times along that section.

Passengers continuing to Micklehurst will need to change at Top Mossley for the 350, whereas Stalybridge passengers must change at Mossley railway station for the 353/354 or opt for Northern Rail’s service to Manchester Victoria. There is also the 408 service; the nearest one to the affected 1720 journey departs at 1743.

Dukinfield passengers will either be forced to change at Ashton-under-Lyne (catching the 409 from Oldham) for 41, 330, 335, 345 and 346 services or wait another 30 minutes for the next 343, which isĀ Stott’s of Oldham’s 1750 journey.
