Hole In Road Between Ventnor And Shanklin: Take Diversion

Yikes, hole in road causes diversion

Anyone planning to drive or catch the bus between Ventnor and Shanklin this morning should expect delays.

Leeson Road Closure:We’ve been informed there is a burst water main on Leeson Road (just before Ventnor) that is stopping access. We’d recommend diverting through upper Ventnor, Wroxall and Whiteley Bank.

We’ll let you know once we hear more.

if you are going to Ryde it is often quicker to take the 3 to Newport from Boots , then get a 9 to Ryde they leave the Bus Station approx 3 or 4 an hour , take 20 to 25 mins its just the same amount of time mostley ,if you need Shanklin get a 2 from Newport bit long winded for Shanklin .but doable .

Usually there is a hole at the end of the road….. Ventnor!

grumpy old fart.

are you on some sort of mission to offend as many people as you can and generally be obnoxious?


I agree with GOF, Jim B that’s not funny or smart just childish.

Updates on Southern Vectis No3 from Ryde would be most appreciated.


it did not take any longer actually to get to Shanklin or Ryde with the diversion in place which it still was at 15 30pm to day , Thats not a very nice comment Mr.JIM .B.but it might be me missing a joke or something ,
For the fit its a nice walk to Shanklin , Any offers for the 77 miler tomorrow at 4am then?

Presuming the diversion is still in place… anyone know if the Southern Vectis No3 from Ryde is running to a normal timetable this evening?
