    Forthcoming diversions as notified:-
    Thame: Kings Road & Queens Road as already notified from 1st August for
    about 6 weeks
    - just to add that temporary stops have now been sited in
    Kingsey Road so please advise drivers on service 40 [HW] and 120 [AY]
    accordingly.

    Towersey: Thame Road in Towersey, between the village crossroads and
    Windmill Road, will be closed from Monday 8th August for up to 5 days
    for resurfacing – services 40, 120 and 123 & TESCO BUS will need to use
    the by-pass, Kingsey Road, Windmill Road and then turn right onto normal
    route and observe bus stop close to junction of Windmill Road in Thame
    Road, Towersey – reverse of this diversion for journeys operating
    towards Thame Town Centre.

    Milton Keynes Rail Station: From Monday 8th August for about 6 months,
    Station Square in MK will be closed for redevelopment. Buses on services
    100 and 150 will run direct along Elder Gate, observing and using the
    Rail Station departure time at the stop in Elder Gate just before the
    roundabout with Midsummer Boulevard, which I understand is to be
    numbered 35, as per the Rail Station stop number.

    Stoke Road & Wendover Road, Aylesbury: on Wednesday 10th August from
    20:00 until 06:00
    the following morning. Closed in the direction of
    inbound towards the Bus Station, including the section of Gyratory
    between Wendover Road and the old Plough & Harrow. The last service 4
    journey should just make it through. Service 300 at 20:45, 21:45 & 22:45
    ex Aylesbury will require to divert via Wendover Road and Station Road
    Stoke Mandeville – thus missing out the Hospital.

    Mandeville Road and Stoke Road, Aylesbury: on Thursday 11th August from
    20:00 until 06:00 the following morning
    , closed only towards Bus
    Station, including the part of the Gyratory that passes the old
    Magistrates Court. Again service 4 should just about be unaffected but
    service 300 from 1915 ex High Wycombe until finish will need to divert
    at Stoke Hospital and run via Churchill Avenue & Oxford Road to the Bus
    Station. Service 9 will also need to return via Churchill Avenue &
    Oxford Road – this may make it difficult to keep to time and if so, some
    later journeys may need to turn short at Mandeville School to run back
    to the Bus Station.

    Advance warning in case of enquiries, that the A5 trunk road is closed
    overnight in MK from 1st September for about 4 weeks – this is 20:00
    until 06:00 so should not affect our services.

    Discounts for Magna Park Employees

    From 1st August, we have teamed up with John Lewis and River Island for their Employees (including temporary staff) to be entitled to discounts on most of our bus services in the Milton Keynes area.
    Working in partnership with both companies, who are subsidising the discount, we hope to increase the number of people using the 300 to get to Magna Park but also encourage travel across our whole network in Milton Keynes.

    River Island

    Anyone who works for River Island must hold a RI ID Pass see picture. Therefore on production of this card you can issue the special R. Island 4 weekly ticket on the machine. There is a dedicated button for R.Island

    John Lewis

    John Lewis employees will only be able to purchase tickets from their Resource Centre at Magna Park so essentially there will be no need for ID to be checked. The ticket will be the same as the pre paid 4 weekly tickets that is issued from Mkube. The J. Lewis button on the wayfarer will not be used at present.

    Tickets can be purchased (except 70 and 15) and used on any Arriva bus service in the MK

    Luton and Aylesbury drivers – please be aware you cannot issue these tickets but once purchased you can accept them for travel within MK on 70 or 150. Tickets are called R. Island 4 Week or J. Lewis 4 Week.

    Another instalment of diversions for you.

    Monday 18th July – Services 16 and 17:

    Buckingham Road in Edgcott closed
    from 0730 until about 1630 for one day – thus we will not be able to
    serve the section between Edgcott Phone Box and the turn off for Calvert
    Green

    From Aylesbury, service 16 to divert from Edgcott, Phone Box, turn left
    down to junction and turn right, through Gubbins Hole then turn right on
    entering Marsh Gibbon and follow road through to Charndon village, right
    at playing field junction to Charndon crossroads, then turn right and
    then left into Calvert Village; on return use the reverse of this
    diversion.

    Monday 1st August & Tuesday 2nd August

    from 0800 to 1800: the "eastern arm" of Appenine Way in Leighton Buzzard will be closed for
    re-surfacing. Services 34 & 35 will need to use the "western arm" of Appenine Way
    instead; service 33 will need to omit Appenine Way altogether.

    Monday 1st August for "about 6 weeks" – Thame: Kings Road and Queens
    Road – roads will be closed for re-construction so services 40 at High
    Wycombe and 120 at Aylesbury will need to divert direct via Kingsey
    Road. Temporary stops will be placed in Kingsey Road near the junction
    with Kings Road.

    HOWEVER WE UNDERSTAND THAT KINGS ROAD HAS BEEN CLOSED FROM TODAY but we
    cannot get confirmation/explanation from Oxfordshire.

    Coming soon  in late July there will be details of the
    long term closure of Station Square in Milton Keynes [latest start date
    8th August] and 3 night time closures in central Aylesbury on 9/10/11
    August.
