  • Uncategorized Comments Off on This weeks diversions

    Two diversions affecting Aylesbury operations – both on FRIDAY 4th DECEMBER.

    Service 55 will be unable to serve Amersham Hospital from 13:00 until finish of the day. Diversion is to continue on by-pass by turning left at roundabout at the bottom of the hill near the hospital, then left at the next roundabout into Gore Hill and right at the next roundabout back onto normal route. Reverse of this coming back to Aylesbury. All journeys to observe bus stops in Gore Hill.

    Service 300 will be unable to serve Princes Risborough High Street from 12 noon until 21:00 due to the “Christmas lights switch-on” – all journeys in both directions to run direct via New Road and observe the temporary bus stops in that road. Note road remains open for a while after 12 noon but buses must divert to avoid problems with the fairground setting up and blocking the road.

    Therefore between midday on Thursday 26 November and last bus plus all day on Friday 27th November, service 55 will be curtailed short and not serve Chesham Broadway.

    The last stop to be served will be Red Lion Street and drivers should then turn round by way of the roundabout at the junction of Red Lion Street and Water Meadow, laying over and picking up at the buss top in Red Lion Street, south of East Street.

    LEIGHTON BUZZARD 3 DAY ANNUAL CHRISTMAS EVENT

    The annual Leighton Buzzard Christmas Festival will occur from 19:30 on Thursday 26 November through to 19:00 on Sunday 29th November.

    Bridge Street, Church Square and the High Street will be closed for the whole duration so all our services in LB will need to divert.

    In addition West Street and Leston Road [between West Street and Hockliffe Street] will be closed on Friday 27thNovember between 1900 and 2200.

    Service 150 should divert via West Street for the whole period observing the temporary stops in West Street. On Friday 27th, the last two northbound journeys [to LB only] will need to run from the A418 LB by-pass roundabout right on to the A505 the left at the second roundabout into Grovebury Road then left at the top onto Lake Street, and drop off at the bus stop in Lake Street by Morrisons. The last two buses coming from MK on reaching the “Flying Fox” roundabout will need to carry on straight ahead along the A5 to Hockliffe and turn right at the traffic lights onto the A4012 and into LB turning left at the roundabout at Hockliffe Street/Leston Road, along Leston Road which becomes Lake Street [setting down / picking up at the bus stop just after Morrisons] then right at the roundabout into Grovebury Road, right at the roundabout at the end onto the A505 then left at the second roundabout onto the A418 and normal route to Aylesbury.

    Service 70 should divert via Leston Road and West Street for the duration observing the temporary stops in West Street. On Friday evening after 19.00 buses will need to set down opposite Morrisons in Lake Street and turn via the roundabout at Leston Road / Hockliffe Street – thus not serving the Rail Station.

    Services 32/33/34/35 should for the duration set down, layover and pick up in Lake Street opposite the Library and depart via Hockliffe Street and Leston Road.

    Service Dash Direct should divert for the duration via West Street and Leston Road. On Friday evening from 19.00 the service will need to curtail as service 70 above, i.e. in Lake Street by Morrisons and not serve the Rail Station.

    SATURDAY DIVERSION UNTIL CHRISTMAS IN CENTRAL MILTON KEYNES

    As in previous years due to the traffic congestion of cars looking for car parking spaces, on Saturdays 28 November, 5th, 12th &19th December services X60, 70 and 150 will divert away from Saxon Gate and Midsummer Boulevard and use Avebury Boulevard and Witan Gate instead.

    Thus the bus stops in Midsummer Boulevard at CBX will not be served – nearest alternative stops will be at The point Shopping Centre or by Santander House.
