  • Uncategorized Comments Off on EVENING ROAD CLOSURES: SERVICE 61

    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.

  • Due to gas main works, Wing Road in Linslade will be closed for roughly 8 weeks from Monday 5 October until around Sunday 29 November.

    Service 150 will therefore be required to divert in both directions.

    Towards Milton Keynes service 150 should turn left from Wing Road just before the railway bridge into Bunkers Lane then follow the road round into what becomes South court Avenue then Southcourt Road then Springfield Road. Then turn right into Soulbury Road, ahead Old Road, ahead at the mini roundabout into Leighton Road and back onto normal route. Towards Aylesbury use the reverse of the outward diversion.

    Observe bus stops on the diversion route please.   


    Due to road resurfacing the roundabout in Aylesbury at the junction of High Street, Tring Road, Park Street & Walton Street, by Tesco’s, will be closed from 1900 until early morning on the evenings of Thursday 1st October, Friday 2nd October, Monday 5th October and Tuesday 6th October.

    Services 61 and 500 will need to divert from Aylesbury Bus Station via Friarage Road, Walton Street, Wendover Road, Wendover Way and King Edward Avenue to re-gain normal route on Tring Road by The Plough.

    Buses towards Aylesbury Bus Station will need to use the reverse of the outward diversion, with service 61 after Walton Street using Exchange Street to get to the High Street and normal route.

    Service 8 should not be affected.

  • Uncategorized Comments Off on Rugby World Cup in Milton Keynes

    Rugby world Cup matches will be held in Milton Keynes at Stadium MK on Thursday 1st October, Saturday 3rd October and Tuesday 6th October, resulting in road closures for services 70 and 150 as follows:-

    Saturday 3rd October, Saxon Street will be closed between Bletcham Way and Standing Way from 09.00 to 19.30.

    During the above times service 150 will divert from the A5 via Bletcham Way as usual then right at the second roundabout into Bond Avenue; straight ahead at the third roundabout into Marlborough Street, bear left at the next roundabout into Standing Way then right at the third roundabout into Saxon Street and normal route to Central Milton Keynes.

    Service 70 as normal to Saxon Street / Bletcham Way roundabout then turn right into Bletcham way and left at next roundabout into Bond Avenue and as above for service 150 into Central MK. Reverse of this on return towards LB.

    Connected to all of this are two parades in Central Milton Keynes on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd October in the evening. The Saturday one will not affect our services but on Friday it will affect the last X60 and the last 150. Secklow Gate will be closed from19.30 until 20.30.

    The X60 should remain at The Point stop H3 for layover and should be allowed to cross Secklow Gate until roughly 19.50 and will need to use the eastern part of Midsummer Boulevard – then right into Marlborough Gate and right into Avebury Boulevard and then straight ahead onto normal route. However if not allowed to cross Secklow Gate will need to wait until the parade has passed!

    The 150 departing The Point H3 at 19.38 should be allowed to cross Secklow Gate at the gatemen’s discretion then go along the eastern part of Midsummer Boulevard right into Marlborough Gate, right into Avebury Boulevard then left into Secklow Gate and normal route.

    The 70 will not be affected.

  • Uncategorized Comments Off on SERVICE 280: BUS STOP SUSPENSION IN HEADINGTON

    From Monday 28th September through until some point on Wednesday 30th September, the bus stop in London Road, Headington, adjacent to Wharton Road plus the buss top almost opposite on the other side of the road will be suspended. In addition the bus lane towards Oxford will also be closed.

    This is to allow Thames Water to connect a new water main to nearby premises the main is unfortunately within the bus lane and not in the very wide pavement there] and will result in a hole in the that nice new piece of roadway they spent months digging up and re-surfacing recently!

  • Uncategorized Comments Off on SERVICE 280: SPEEDWELL STREET, OXFORD

    From Monday 28th September until Saturday 3rd October, in connection with the Westgate Development, B.T. and their contractors need to dig up part of Speedwell Street adjacent to the junction with ButterWyke Place [where the 1, 8 and U5 turn round and stand]. There will be single line working off peak during this work with the traffic controlled by manual STOP/GO boards.

  • Uncategorized Comments Off on Route 280 – Thame High Street – Saturday 26th September

    Due to the Thame Food Festival, Thame High Street between Bell Lane and North Street plus part of North Street will be closed from 05.30 through to 19.00 on Saturday 26th September.

    Service 280 will need to divert in both directions from Aylesbury Road via Bell Lane to Thame High Street [north west section] and vice-versa.

    Thus the bus stops at Thame Town Hall and opposite outside the Co-op plus the two bus stops in North Street will not be served whilst the diversion is in place.

    The Saturday morning journey that commences at Thame Town Hall to Aylesbury should start instead at Thame Museum having arrived dead from the garage via the by-pass and Oxford Road.
