Southern Vectis Customer Services have provided us with the following information:

“I have been informed by our depot management team that we will be running a shuttle service between Dubbers and Wroxall.

The times are still being worked out by our commercial team but I have been assured that no one will be left behind when this closure officially kicks in.

As soon as the details have been finalised, we’ll post all the information on our website for customers to see so they can plan accordingly.”

    It appears that Southern Vectis have been having meetings with Island Roads since Tuesday. I have just phoned Southern Vectis on 0330 0539 182. They do not have any additional details and do not know when they will have details! It was implied that there would be no further information today. We will keep monitoring their website https://www.islandbuses.info/ for news.

    Full details of the Shuttle Bus can be found at https://www.islandbuses.info/godshill-road-closure-godshill-shuttle-service.

    It appears that the only guaranteed simple connection which enables ‘convenient’ travel between Godshill and Shanklin is at the end of the shuttle journey at Wroxall Church. This means that your journey will then be via Ventnor with the journey time increasing from about 15 minutes to 45 minutes.

    A ‘not to be advised’ alternative is to hop off the shuttle at Whiteley Bank, walk the 200 yards to the route 2 bus stop and wait for the next bus. It is unclear as to how long you might have to wait! If anyone tries this, it would be good to know how dangerous it is and the typical wait time.
