    There will be a Christmas parade in Buckingham on Saturday 15th December and various roads will be closed between 1000 and 1300.

    Buses will not be able to access the High Street, Moreton Road or the Bus Stand. Service 60 will need to divert from Tesco by turning right at the roundabout and along the A421 then left onto the A413 then left into Stratford Road right into ADDINGTON ROAD and right into Moreton Road and as usual to Maids Moreton – diversion in reverse of outward on return from MM towards Aylesbury.

    As far as I am aware we haven’t used Addington Road before but I am told by Bucks CC it is suitable for buses and has been used before. However it might be advisable to allocate single deckers to the two 60 workings on that day in case of any low trees or wires

    Journeys affected by the road closure are 0945, 1045, 1145 from Aylesbury to Maids Moreton and the 1041, 1141, 1241 from Maids Moreton to Aylesbury.
