The closure for tomorrow is now postponed until w/c 25th November
Church Road in Wheatley will be closed for two weeks for sewer works from Monday 18th November through to Friday 29th November inclusive.
Service 280 will divert in both directions via London Road.
The 3 bus stops in each direction in Church Road will therefore be closed for the duration but will be replaced by temporary bus stops on each side of the road in London Road in the vicinity of The Kings Arms PH and near to The Glebe, which drivers must observe should they be requested to do so.
On Sunday 10th November between 10:00 and midday, Thame High Street will be closed for a Remembrance Day service and parade.
Journeys from Aylesbury at 0930 and 1030, and from Oxford at 1000 and 1100 will need to divert off the diversion route in Thame!
As per the diversion route except on reaching the roundabout by the Cricket Field/Police Station , circumnavigate the roundabout and return up Bell Lane and back to the “normal” diversion route, thereby missing out the stops at The Co-op, Town Hall and North Street.
Frogmoor in High Wycombe will be closed between 07:00 and 13:30 for Remembrance Parades on Sunday 10th November.
Thus Archway should be sued by service 300 in both directions; last southbound stop before the Bus Station will therefore be Beaconsfield Arms and first northbound stop after the Bus station will be in Glenisters Road outside Morrisons.
All 300;s 0745 to 1205 ex Aylesbury and 0610 to 1305 ex High Wycombe should follow the above diversion
ROADS CLOSURE: HEATH & REACH TUESDAY 12th NOVEMBER: AYLESBURY SERVICE 150
Birds Hill in Heath & Reach [the section of road by “the Shops”] will be closed for traffic calming works to take place on Tuesday 12th November between 09:00 and 15:30.
Service 150 should divert towards MK off Heath Road via Shenley Hill Road, left at the crossroads into Miletree Road then right at the T junction into Eastern way and left onto the A5 and back onto normal route at The Flying Fox roundabout. Coming back from MK follow the reverse of the outward diversion.
Journeys on service 150 from 0840 to 140 ex Aylesbury Bus Station and 0858 to 1458 ex MK Rail Station should follow the above diversion.
Note also that the above diversion at the above times will also operate on Monday/Tuesday 25/26 November due to closures of other roads in Heath & Reach [Woburn Road and Leighton Road] for continuing traffic calming works.
We have just been informed that a section of Aylesbury Road in Thame will be closed from tomorrow morning at 0730 for an expected period of 3 weeks initially but provisionally estimated to be for 6 weeks, due to a collapsed sewer.
This is the area where single line working controlled by temporary traffic lights has been occurring for the past 3 weeks but the situation is now worse then had been foreseen.
Services 280 and 110 will need to divert away from the closure by using Thame by-pass and then double running into Thame via Oxford Road, Priestend and High Street, then turning via Bell Lane and North Street to pick up as usual at the Co-op going towards Oxford; or coming from Oxford via normal route to Town Hall and then via North Street, Bell Lane and High Street, Priestend, Oxford Road and Thame by-pass.
This diversion is likely to add significant journey time to the 280 service and serious disruption to the service can be expected.
Thus bus stops at Queens Close and Cricket Ground will not be served during the closure.
The TRO actually sates the work will be carried out from “0730 to 1800, possibly later for 7 days a week”. However it is not clear that the road would be open outside of these times, so unless anyone disagrees for now I think we should plan the closure for 24 hours a day.
Due to road repairs and planting of a mature tree, Leighton Buzzard High Street will be closed for 4 hours between 1100 and 1500 on Thursday 31st October.
Routes D1, 70 and 150 should operate via West Street [observing the usual temporary stops in that road] – with the D1 and 70 continuing direct via Lessons Road to Billington Road/Stanbridge Road and the 150 to North Street and vice-versa.
Services 32/33/34/35 should terminate and layover in Lake Street opposite the library and depart via Hockliffe Street.
From Monday 28th October for approximately 4.5 weeks, Castle Hill Road in Totternhoe will be closed fro water main replacement.
Service 61 will be on diversion during this time and will be unable to serve much of Eaton Bray and Totternhoe.
Service 61 will divert from Aylesbury, normal route to Eaton Bray, Moor End green, then turn right into Bower Lane, then turn left into Dunstable Road, ahead into Church Road, into Totternhoe and turn right back onto normal route at Totternhoe, Church End [drivers to check departure time at Church End!].
Service 61 from Luton, normal route to Church End, then turn left into Church Road and drop off any passengers for Totternhoe as soon as safe to do so, continue along Church Road, ahead into Dunstable Road, right into Bower Lane and then left at Moor End Green and onto normal route.
Central Bedfordshire Council are providing a special bus from Totternhoe, Castle Close/Poplar Farm into Dunstable – the times for this are on the attached notice.
The Heath & Reach road closure for next week on service 150 is now postponed and when it does occur will be conducted overnight.
