Thame High Street is to have repairs then resurfacing carried out between 9th and 20th June.
From 9th June the road will remain open whilst repairs are carried out but there might be some delays, and presumably some buss top interference as the work is being carried out in this area.
From Monday 16th June until Friday 20th June, Thame High Street will be closed for the resurfacing between the North Street roundabout [which is still accessible] and the Bell Lane junction.
Services will therefore not be able to serve the major buss tops at Thame Town Hall and outside Thame co-op.
Diversions for service 110 and 280 will be as per Thame Fair, i.e. buses to use Bell Lane in both directions with main stops now being Thame Museum and by The Old Thatch.
Service 40 should use the Upper High Street as usual in both directions but then drop off at the Police Station bus stop at the end of North Street, circumnavigate the roundabout, and return along North Street to layover and pick up at the bus stop in North Street just after the junction with Wellington Street, then continuing along North Street and turning left at the end back onto normal route along Upper High Street.
Services 120, 123 and 124 should use Bell Lane and North Street, picking up and laying over at the bus stops in North Street instead of the High Street.

Due to a cycle event in Milton Keynes, service 150 between MK Shops and Rail Station will need to use Avebury Boulevard in both directions rather than midsummer Boulevard – all day on both Saturday 7th June and Sunday 8th June.

Woburn Road in Heath& Reach will be closed for road repairs and resurfacing on Tuesday 27 May and Wednesday 28 May between 0900 and 1530, meaning service 150 will need to divert.
Thus journeys departing Aylesbury Bus station between 0840 and 1440 inclusive should run as normal to Heath Road, then right into Shenley Hill Road, left into Mile Tree Road, right into Eastern Way and left onto the A% to re-join normal route to Milton Keynes at the Flying Fox roundabout.
Journeys departing MK Rail Station from 0902 to 1405 inclusive should use normal route to the Flying Fox roundabout, straight ahead along the A5, turn right into Eastern Way, left into Mile Tree Road, right into Shenley Hill Road and left into Heath Road and normal line of route.

I have just seen a Central Bedfordshire roadworks sheet I do not normally get sent, and looking through it discovered that Woburn Road in Heath & Reach is due to be closed from 2000 until 0600 tonight, 27 May. It says until 28 May – presumably meaning 0600 tomorrow morning and not tomorrow night again?
This means the last 150 from MK at 202 from MK rail station will need to divert – as previously from the “Flying Fox” roundabout, straight ahead via the A5 then second right into Eastern Way, first left into Miletree Road, first right into Shenley Hill Road and left at the end into Heath Road and normal route back to Aylesbury.
Road is closed for “pre patching and surfacing work” so from that it would suggest we have further road closures to come!

Frogmoor and Oxford Street in High Wycombe Town Centre will be closed all day on Sunday 25th May for a festival.
Service 300 will therefore be unable to serve bus stops in Temple End, Frogmoor and Oxford Street.
Buses towards HW Bus Station should divert via Glenisters Road, Arch Way and resume normal route at the big roundabout just before the Bus Station. On departing the Bus Station, down to the roundabout as usual then first left into Arch Way and then normal route into Glenisters Road, first bus stop being outside Morrisons.

I have just received confirmation that the A4146/A418 roundabout between Wing and Leighton Buzzard will be closed from 2000 on Friday this week until 0600 on Monday. This is a full weekend closure and not overnight only.
Service 150 will divert from Wing via High Street, Stewkley Road, Soulbury Rd, B4032 Soulbury Road (Leighton Buzzard) to line of route at Leighton Buzzard . The service will not be able to serve some stops in Wing also all stops in Linslade.
No other routes require diversion however the effect of displaced traffic is likely to cause significant delay for all services in the Leighton Buzzard area throughout the weekend.

Wing By pass roundabout resurfacing work cancelled this weekend

Oxford High Street will be closed EASTBOUND only [that is towards Aylesbury] on Sunday morning 11th May from 8 am until midday for a charity run.
Service 280 journeys departing Oxford Rail Station at 0910, 1000 and 1100 will thus be required to divert from New Road, via Old Greyfriars Street, Speedwell Street, Thames Street, Abingdon Road, Weirs lane, Donnington Bridge Road, Iffley Road to regain normal route at The Plain roundabout.
Therefore passengers will only be able to board after the Rail Station at Frideswide Square, New Road and then at St.Clements.
The 1200 departure from the Rail station should be ok for normal route.
Note that the High Street is closed to all but buses and taxis westbound, so the 280 should proceed along normal route heading towards Oxford Rail Station.
