This closure, now expected to last 8 days from 13 to 27 September [!!!], is in BOTH directions, so will be even more disruptive than thought last night.
Note the afternoon school journey will need to serve Buckingham School and the Chandos stop [for royal Latin School] so will have to turn via Bourton Road and Bourtonville and omit Buckingham Town Centre completely.

From 1900 until 0600 on Friday & Saturday 14 & 15 September, the A41 in Aylesbury will be closed between Tring Road / Bedgrove roundabout and the Weston Road roundabout in Aston Clinton. The ACX by-pass will also be closed from College Roadjunctions through to its end in Aylesbury.
The Aylesbury-bound 500’s and 61’s after 1900 will therefore need to run from Aston Clinton via Weston Road, Weston Turville, Stoke Mandeville, Wendover Road and Bedgrove to return to normal route at Tring Road / Bedgrove roundabout.
The outbound evening 61 will run as normal to Bedgrove but then via Camborne Avenue, Wendover Road, Stoke Mandeville, Weston Turville, Weston Road to re-join normal route in Aston Clinton.
Further to my post of last month concerning the closure of access to Towersey village for one day on 3rd September for electricity supply works; it appears the work was cancelled for a second time without any notice!
The work will now be carried out on Tuesday 25th September so services [except the 123] will be unable to serve Towersey village at all on that day. The 123 should operate up Thame Road almost to the village centre and then reverse turn intoWindmill Road.
Monday 24th & Tuesday 25th September, Chesham Broadway will be closed overnight from 1900 until 0600 so service 55 will need to terminate at the roundabout of the junction of Red Lion Street and St.Mary’s Way and Watermeadow.
However there is also a possibility that red Lion Street will be closed at the same time for re-surfacing – if this is the case then the 55 will need to terminate at the roundabout at the bottom of Amersham hill as you enter Chesham – by Moor Lane. It is said a temporary stop will be placed just after turning at the roundabout where the bus can wait for time.
Please note the Oxford Road Bus Lane in Aylesbury will be closed for re-surfacing between Coldharbour Way and Fowler Road junction for one night on Monday 17th September between 1900 and 0600.
Thus the 280 towards Aylesbury at this times will need to use the normal public roads and miss the bus stop at Pearson Close.
Please note that Old Amersham Broadway area will be closed all day on Wednesday 19 September and Thursday 20 September for the Amersham Chatter Fair.
Service 55 will be unable to serve Amersham Hospital on both these days and will need instead to run via Amersham by-pass and Gore Hill instead. Buses must observe the Gore Hill bus stops in both directions and await scheduled departure time at both as the diversion is shorter then the normal route.
The annual Thame Fair will take place from 19th until 23rd September and services 40, 110, 120, 123, 124, 200 and 280 will be on diversion.
The closure times are from 16:00 on Wednesday 19th September until midday on Sunday 23rd September.
Service 40 will need to divert off of East street along wellington Street and turn right into North Street, circumnavigating the roundabout by the police station, back along North Street and left into Wellington Street to stand and pick up. Then departing via Wellington Street and back into East Street and as normal.
Service 110 will need to enter Thame from Long Crendon via the Thame by-pass then left into Oxford Road and into the High Street to set down, pick up at the bus stop by the Museum, departing via Bell Lane back to Aylesbury Road and then as normal from the “CPM” roundabout. The afternoon journey from Lord Williams Lower should use the Thame By-pass then Aylesbury Road, Bell Lane, High Street [observing stop by the Old Thatch], Oxford Road to Lord Williams Upper and as normal
Services 120, 123 and 124 should run via High Street, Bell Lane, North Street and Wellington Street to East Street and vice-versa. Main stops will be at High Street by the Museum or Old Thatch but bus should also observe the temporary stop in Wellington Street if required.
Services 200 and 280 should use Aylesbury Road, Bell Lane and High Street, observing main stops at Old Thatch towardsOxford and Museum towards Aylesbury.
