Our buses that would normally pass through there, ( 38, 38A, 9, 9A) will be diverted via Victoria Street, Railway Street, South Street, and St Michaels Road.

We will continue to serve Braintree Bus Park as usual.

Please be aware that we expect there will be delays to our services during this period.

 

Colchester Road in Halstead remains closed after the water main burst at the weekend. Buses will turn at the Ramsey Academy and return to Halstead town centre via Colne Road and Head St until Colchester Road is open again.

We have bene advised of emergency road closures in Great Bardfield, Bridge Street.

We have contacted the contractor, and at the time of posting, we await their reply.

Service 16  terminate and recommence service at Gt Bardfield.

Service 16, 17:57hrs completes full service to Great Bardfield and then diverts via Gt Saling, Shalford Green, Shalford, to Wethersfield if required.

For the days to follow:

 

Service 9, 06:30-06:42hrs normal route. Then return from Alienor Avenue, Gt Bardfield via Great Saling, Shalford Green,  Shalford, to Wethersfield, the Green.

 

Service 9A, 07:30-07:42hrs normal route. Then return from Alienor Avenue, Gt Bardfield via Great Saling, Shalford Green, to Shalford, to Wethersfield, the Green.

ROUTES 417 and 418

 

Route 417 will start in Rayne as it usually does and travel as normal as far as Bran End, here it will turn toward Gt Dunmow, Dunmow to Thaxted and then past Gt Sampford toward Radwinter. Unfortunately, this leaves Lindsell and beyond unserved.  Route 417 passengers from Lindsell and Great Bardfield should, where possible,  make their way to join the 418 which will depart from outside the Coop store at 07:31, any passengers from Finchingfield will need to board the 419 at its usual time of 07:35 app.

 

Route 418 will start its journey at 07:31 in Great Bardfield itself and then have to come back to St. Sailing. From there the only practical route to get to Finchingfield will be via Braintree and Wethersfield. Undoubtedly, this will impact significantly on departure times from Finchingfield onward. We estimate a minimum of 30 minutes. We\'d suggest appropriate, warm clothing. 

These arrangements will remain in place for the duration of the emergency road closure.

We\'re very sorry for this disruption which unfortunately is beyond our control.

 

 

Due to road closures by ECC the following service changes will apply for the week Monday 9th – Friday 13th January.

 

Service D1 will run Maldon – Steeple at normal times. There will be no service beyond Steeple to St Lawrence or Bradwell.

Service D4 will run Burnham/Southminster – Tillingham Square. There will be no service beyond Tillingham to Bradwell.   We will attempt to run the 0626,0706 and 0750 journeys from Bradwell since the road closure is not due to commence until 0800. Similarly we will attempt to run the 1630 ex Burnham and the 1742 & 1837 ex Southminster as the road is due to re-open at 1700.   Note that is it unlikely the journeys on D4 to Ormiston Rivers Academy will be able to serve Bradwell though we will try to do so if allowed through.  The first pick up/set down will be Tillingham.

 

Apologies for the inconvenience and short notice – this matter is completely outside our control.

We have some new timetables available for bus services 16, Newmarket to Bury St Edmunds and Breeze 1 and 2.

The revised schedules commence on Monday the 16th January 2017
