    Two diversions affecting Aylesbury operations – both on FRIDAY 4th DECEMBER.

    Service 55 will be unable to serve Amersham Hospital from 13:00 until finish of the day. Diversion is to continue on by-pass by turning left at roundabout at the bottom of the hill near the hospital, then left at the next roundabout into Gore Hill and right at the next roundabout back onto normal route. Reverse of this coming back to Aylesbury. All journeys to observe bus stops in Gore Hill.

    Service 300 will be unable to serve Princes Risborough High Street from 12 noon until 21:00 due to the “Christmas lights switch-on” – all journeys in both directions to run direct via New Road and observe the temporary bus stops in that road. Note road remains open for a while after 12 noon but buses must divert to avoid problems with the fairground setting up and blocking the road.
