There are two road closures for re-surfacing after 19:00 affecting service 61 over the next 10 days.
Firstly: on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th October, Upper Icknield Way – the road between Ivinghoe Beacon turn and Vicarage Road – will be closed. This is used by the two evening short 61s to turn round at Ivinghoe. The two journeys from Aylesbury will need to use the normal 6 1 route through to Ivinghoe and then travel empty down to the Travellers Rest roundabouts to turn round and back empty to Ivinghoe to resume normal route back to Aylesbury.
Secondly: on Friday 9th October and Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday 12/13/14 October the road will be closed at Northfield Roundabout – the junction of the road from Bulbourne and the road from Castlefield. The last bus from Dunstable – the 19:00 journey WILL BE ALLOWED THROUGH with the driver needing to show the usual caution and patience for any equipment etc to be moved out of the way.
The two evening short journeys to Ivinghoe will need to divert from New Mill via Tringford Road, Tringford Crossroads and Marsworth through to Pitstone[i.e. the old 61 route], thereby not serving Bulbourne and Castlemead, and then as usual to Ivinghoe – reverse of this diversion via Marsworth on return to Aylesbury.
