We have been notified today that emergency gas works started at the junction of South Road and Diplocks Way with three-way temporary lights. This is likely to lead to considerable delays and will continue until 29th May.
The already diverted H1 which uses Diplocks Way will divert further north to approach Hailsham via the Boship roundabout, then Summerheath Road into Western Road, then normal route. The regular service runs should not be affected unless the town is gridlocked.
We understand that all of the road closures and obstructions have now been removed around Polegate Crossroads, and so all our services through this junction are now operating to their normal routes.
Station Road, Berwick is closed until Monday 6th June for Highways England to complete work on the cycleway. This closure affects many of our services and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but the circumstances are out of our control.
Services are affected as shown below:
26 - 0905 journey leaves Berwick Station 5 minutes earlier, normal operation to and from Berwick Station has resumed at other times.
36 - leaves Berwick Station 5 minutes earlier.
40 - on Tuesdays leaves Berwick Station 5 minutes earlier.
42 - the 1043 from Alfriston runs up to 5 minutes late and the 1326 at Alfriston may run late too.
43 - leaves Berwick Station 5 minutes earlier.
44 - on Tuesdays the 0925 and 1349 journeys leave Berwick Station 5 minutes earlier, on Thursdays the 0930 journey from Chalvington leaves 5 minutes earlier.
47 Cuckmere Valley Ramblerbus - we regret that journeys may be delayed and miss train connections at Berwick and Seaford.
H1 - the 0750 journey from Berwick Station is diverted to operate via Upper Dicker and Michelham.
The bus stops at Exceat Cuckmere Inn are suspended due to long term roadworks so our 40 and 47 services are unable to stop there until further notice.

Government advice is for passengers to continue to wear a mask or face covering but our drivers will not insist that passengers do so. If you don't have your own face covering we can provide you with one on the bus for a charitable donation. Further information can be found on the BBC website.
We have taken steps to protect drivers and passengers including enhanced cleaning. Please assist our drivers in making conditions as safe as possible for everyone.
We hope passengers will understand the difficult circumstances we continue to face.
Whilst we will still accept cash payments, we urge passengers to use contactless payment wherever possible and to note that change will NOT be given.
