Bus services on Monday 17th February

Roads in Alfriston are clear, so our services will operate normally today.

Alfriston works update, Monday 3rd February

Experience with traffic congestion in The Furlongs has led us to reroute our 126 journeys with effect from Tuesday 4th February until the end of phase 3 of the work.

Instead of using The Furlongs when heading towards Seaford, services will continue up North Road to The Broadway then Deans Road to the temporary stop at the top of Star Lane then Weavers Lane back to the normal route. This is the same as planned for journeys heading to Berwick or Eastbourne. The change will apply every day including Sundays.

Phase 2 (revised) from 4th February 2020
The Market Cross stop is not accessible and instead, services will observe a stop at the junction of Star Lane and Deans Road in both directions. Services will operate as follows:

  • Service 38 will stop in the Willows coach park for the duration of the roadworks.
  • Service 42 will only pick up at Willows coach park, but on its return journey, it will operate as required via the Dene car park, West Street, North Road, The Broadway and Deans Road, returning via The Broadway.
  • Service 47 This seasonal service is due to commence running again from Saturday 28th March 2020, but could be affected by the on-going works. A further announcement will be made closer to the start date once we know how far the work has got.
  • Service 125 will operate normally to and from the Willows coach park.
  • Monday to Saturday Service 126 will run through between Berwick Station and Seaford but will divert in Alfriston via the Dene car park, West Street, North Road, The Broadway, Deans Road and Weavers Lane, returning to the normal route at the Wingrove Hotel. Journeys from Seaford will also operate via The Broadway. The Market Cross stop will not be accessible and instead, this service will observe a stop at the junction of Star Lane and Deans Road in both directions.
  • Sunday Service 126 will divert in Alfriston via the Dene car park, West Street, North Road, The Broadway, Deans Road and Weavers Lane, returning to the normal route at the Wingrove Hotel. Journeys from Seaford will also operate via The Broadway. The Market Cross stop will not be accessible and instead, this service will observe a stop at the junction of Star Lane and Deans Road in both directions.
We expect this diversion to last through phases 2 and 3 of the work with the next variation expected around the end of March if work runs to time. The fourth and final phase will have a greater impact on some services and a full announcement will be made once we can be sure of a date.

We apologise to passengers for the inconvenience caused by reasons entirely outside our control.

Alfriston High Street closed from January 2020

Alfriston High Street is closed to through traffic from 2nd January until late April whilst a new water main is installed by contractors on behalf of South East Water. Our services through the village will be seriously affected by this closure, which takes place in four phases.

Details of how our services will operate are shown on this page. We cannot be sure of the dates quoted, and may need to change plans at short notice if work extends beyond the expected date or finishes early. We will place notices here on our website and in buses as soon as we are aware of date changes.

Some school and regular services are provided by other operators and if you use those services, please contact the operator concerned for details of what they will be running: Compass Travel

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during these works due to circumstances entirely outside our control.

Closure of Ripe Lane for one week from 17th February

Ripe Lane north from Ripe Stores will be closed for a week from 17th February.

Our 38 and 44 (Thursday afternoon) services will need to divert at Chalvington and operate via the Yew Tree, Chalvington to reach Deanland Wood Park, returning to Chalvington by the same route.

Service 38 will then run to Ripe via Church Lane to pick up its normal route to Firle.

Service 44 will not be able to serve Ripe on 20th February.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this closure which is outside our control.

Services 44, 49, 195 and 196 diverted in Eastbourne

We understand that, following the fire at the Claremont Hotel, that Grand Parade by the pier is closed. Drivers of the 44, 49, 195 and 196 have been made aware of likely diversions while driving into and out of Eastbourne.

Service 125 unable to serve Charleston Farmhouse

We regret that our Saturday service 125 is currently unable to serve Charleston Farmhouse as the private drive is in poor condition and unsafe for our buses. Buses will instead stop on the A27 at the end of the drive until further notice.
