RE: SAPPHIRE 280: DIVERSION AROUND THE BUILDING SITE IN OXFORD

Apparently the switch over of route is to be “after 10.00am” on Monday 3rd.

SERVICE 300: DIVERSION IN PRINCES RISBOROUGH

Due to flood prevention works in Duke Street, Princes Risborough, the road will be closed thus Princes Risborough High Street will also be closed. 

The closure is 24 hours a day from Monday 3rd October through to Thursday 6th October.

 

During this time, service 300 will divert via New Road and observe the temporary stops along that road.

 

Drivers should ensure they do not depart the stops in New Road before their High Street times.

SAPPHIRE 280: DIVERSION AROUND THE BUILDING SITE IN OXFORD

 From Monday 3rd October until Monday 24th October [estimated], there will be a diversion to the current route the 280 follows between Speedwell Street and Castle Street in both directions.

 

The section of road through the building site will be closed, as will Old Greyfriars Street and the short section of Speedwell Street between the building site and the short road off to the Thames Street junction.

 

Buses will divert from Speedwell Street, left into the small section of road to the traffic lights; right into Thames Street, then right at a new junction into a different part of the building site, then follow this new road [which incidentally will be the road we use once the Westgate Centre is finished] around the building site and it comes out at the junction with Castle Street – where we currently join this road from the building site diversion.

 

Same route on return from the Rail Station.

 

No stops are affected.

 

SERVICE 280: CLOSURE OF THAME HIGH STREET – SATURDAY 24th SEPTEMBER

Due to the annual Food Festival in Thame, parts of the High Street and North Street will be closed from first bus until 19.00 on Saturday 24th September.

Service 280 during this time will need to divert from the Police Station roundabout via the third exit into Bell Lane then right at the mini roundabout back onto normal route along the High Street western section. Reverse of this diversion on the way back to Aylesbury.

Check departure times from Thame, The Old Thatch and Thame Museum bus stops, to ensure you do not depart before the time due to leave the High Street Co-op and Town Hall.

First buses that day to resume normal route will be the 18.30 ex Aylesbury Bus Stn and the 18:35 ex Oxford Rail Stn.

UPDATE – TEMPORARY RE-LOCATED BUS STOP, TURL STREET/OXFORD HIGH STREET – SERVICES 280 & X8

Due to a filming company using a cherry picker to take film through an outside window into Lincoln College, the 280 and X8 bus stop in Oxford High Street at Turl Street, [i.e. Aylesbury-bound], will be closed all day on Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd September.

An alternative bus stop and no waiting zone will be created to allow room for our services to stop and pick up on the area between Scrivens Opticians and the bus stop outside Brasenose College – normally used by the Sightseeing Tour buses.

Oxford High Street – Temporary bus stop closure – 22/23 Sept 2016

SERVICE 280: CLOSURE OF THAME HIGH STREET FOR THAME FAIR

As usual, Thame Fair will take place next week and will effect service 280. 

The High Street and North Street will be closed from 07.00 in some documents and 14.00 in other documents on Wednesday 14th September, all day on Thursday, Friday & Saturday 15th, 16th & 17th September and until midday on Sunday 18th September. The document from Oxon CC that mentions a 07.00 closure does point out the time has changed this year – whereas the document from Thame Town Council just says closed from 16.00 but refers specifically to buses so this may well mean that only buses can access the High Street between 000 and 1600 on the Wednesday?

 

Service 280 will need to divert in both directions via Bell Lane between the Police Station roundabout and the Lower High Street. Buss tops at High Street and North Street in both directions will therefore not be served.

 

CLOSURE OF AYLESBURY ROAD, THAME – SERVICE 280 DIVERSION

 Aylesbury Road in Thame will be closed for re-surfacing between 20:00 and 06:00 the following morning on Monday 12th, Tuesday 13th & early on Wednesday 14th September 2016.

 

Service 280 will need to divert and the bus stops at Queens Close / CPM will not be served.

 

From Thame Town hall buses use North Street and stop at the police station as usual then divert up Bell Lane, right into the High Street, Oxford Road and the Thame by-pass to reach the A418 and normal route to Aylesbury. Towards Oxford from the A418 via the Thame by-pass, Oxford Road, High Street, left at the roundabout into Bell Lane then straight across at the next roundabout into North Street and normal route to Thame, Co-op etc to Oxford.

 

Buses from 20.00 ex Aylesbury through to last bus plus possibly 0515 ex Aylesbury and 0530 ex Thame the following morning will need to divert;

 

Buses from 1916 ex Oxford through to last bus will need to divert.
