From Saturday 2nd December the 79 service will return to normal line of route along Bilston Road and tram replacement will be withdrawn from Sunday 17th December 2017.
Following completion of track replacement works along Bilston Road, the 79 will return to operating both ways along Bilston Road from Saturday 2nd December.
The timetable will be unchanged from this date as trams will continue to terminate at Priestfield whist tram driver route training takes place.
From Sunday 17th December the timetable of the 79 will change and the additional journeys between Bilston and Wolverhampton that were introduced to replace the tram service will be withdrawn.
The 79 will return to operating up to every 10 minutes between Wolverhampton and West Bromwich. From this date, tickets and passes valid on the Metro only will no longer be valid on the 79.
