LONG TERM 280 DIVERSION IN OXFORD CITY CENTRE – EASTBOUND ONLY from 6th JUNE

Wednesday, May 25th, 2016

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.

ROAD CLOSURES IN TRING: 20 – 24 MAY

Monday, May 16th, 2016

There are two road closures in Tring for road re-surfacing.

Both are listed as “up to 2 days between 20th & 24th May with a re-visit between 10th & 14th June”. Assuming they will not work at weekends, the first closures should be up to 2 days out of Friday 20th may, Monday 23rd May & Tuesday 24th May. All closures are between 09.30 and 16.30.

First one: Aylesbury Road between Icknield Way and Park Road. Services 61 and 500 in both directions will need to divert from the roundabouts at the Tring by-pass via Icknield Way and then right into Christchurch Road and then left into Tring High Street and normal route, return via the reverse of the outward.

The second one is Station Road so the special “Tring School” 500 journeys in the afternoon will not be able to run via Station Road and Cow Lane – they will need to run via the normal route.
