Old Amersham Broadway will be closed on Thursday 6th December from 17:00 until 21:00 for a Christmas lights ceremony.

Service 55 will not be able to serve Amersham Hospital and Whielden Street during the closure and will need to run via the “by-pass” and Gore Hill, observing bus stops at Gore Hill. Note that on journeys towards Aylesbury, the time at Gore Hill for the second occasion [buses pass this stop twice, once before going to the hospital and once after] must be adhered to so drivers will need to stop and wait time in the bus stop lay-by.

Princes Risborough High Street will be closed from 15;00 for the rest of the day on Friday 30th November.

Service 300 will need to use the usual diversion via New Road and observe the part-time stops on that road.

The service will need to divert from the 1430 ex Aylesbury and the from the 1425 ex High Wycombe. This will cover any delays to these buses in case they arrive a few minutes late in PR.

Frogmoor and oxford street Closure

Frogmoor and Oxford Street in High Wycombe will be closed ALL DAY on Thursday 22nd November for the ceremony of switching on the Christmas lights.

Service 300 will therefore run direct from Hughenden road via Glenisters Road and Arch Way to Oxford Road and the Eden bus station – the reverse of this on leaving the Bus Station.

The last stop going towards High Wycombe before the Eden Bus station will therefore be at the Beaconsfield Arms, and the first stop after Eden Bus Station going to Aylesbury will be outside Morrisons in Glenisters Road.

Aylesbury Bus Closure date

Aylesbury Bus Station will be closed from 19:00 on Saturday 17 November until 08:00 on Sunday 18 November.  This is to allow for repairs to the shutter tracks.

Princes Risborough, service 300 – High Street closed from start of service until 1130 – useNew Road and temporary buss tops in that road. Closure notice also says Horns Lane and Bell Street but I doubt this as this is the “through road” so is possibly just a short closure whilst parade passes through and if this is the case then any bus will need to just sit and wait.
