Road Closure between Thaxted and Broxted.
This road is closed daily between the hours of 09:30 and 15:30 until 26th February 2019. Unfortunately we are unable to serve Broxted and Molehill Green for the duration of the closure. The diversion route is via Great Dunmow to Stansted Airport.
We have assessed the current access at the junction of Acacia Drive and Washington Road.
Currently we are able to make the journey towards Maldon Morrisons, as normal, without diverting.

You are more than welcome to board the bus on the way out to Morrisons carry on in to town, if you wish.
We will continue to keep an eye on the situation. Apologies for any inconvenience for these circumstances which ufortunately we have no control over
