From Monday 6th June, Queen Street and Bonn Square in Oxford City Centre will be closed for until mid-November in connection with the development of the new Westgate Centre.
Buses on service 280 eastbound, i.e. from Oxford to Aylesbury will therefore need to divert from New Road via Castle Street, the building site, Old Greyfriars Street, Speedwell Street, St.Aldates to High Street and normal route. No bus stops will be missed on this diversion. However due to the lengthy diversion and the delays caused by the temporary traffic lights and the need to negotiate any delays through the building site, extra time has been added to the running time between Oxford Rail Station and Oxford High Street so the timetable and duties are revised from this date as attached.
There is no change to the route from Aylesbury to the Rail Station.
Note also that from approximately 13th June, the exact route through the building site will change as the development works move on Phase 4, so as needs demand, the road will be moved slightly to a revised alignment.
