Works on the A27 continue and we have been advised by Highways England that further work may increase delays to service 44 between the 21st and 25th June. Until further notice we are entering via Gainsborough Lane (as authorised) and leaving via Brown Jack Avenue, missing out Bahram Road. Apologies for any inconvenience.
Roadworks at Earwig Corner are causing very significant delays of 10 or more minutes in each direction. Add that to the delays at Drusillas and Polegate, the 25 has become very difficult to operate on time. For the duration of the work (estimated 18 weeks), the service will divert through Cuilfail Tunnel in both directions and dog-leg into and out of Glynde, reversing at the Post Office (where the stop is). Apologies for any inconvenience.
Peakdean Lane, East Dean will be closed for resurfacing on 17th June. Service 41 will wait time at Dene Side in both directions.
We have just been informed that the diversion due to start on 1st June has been postponed so our 196 will operate normally. We will update this information once the new dates are confirmed.
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.
The length of Station Road from Drusillas roundabout to the Common Lane junction is closed to allow for the complete rebuilding of Drusillas roundabout in connection with the A27 works. Our services are diverted via Common Lane during this long term closure and depart Berwick station up to 5 minutes earlier than shown in the timetables. Some journeys on services 25, 26 and 126 are not serving Berwick Station to avoid delays.
Delays of about 20 minutes are likely on services 25 and 26 coming into Eastbourne. We do not know how long the roadworks are scheduled to take so these diversions are until further notice.
Services 25 and 26 towards Eastbourne are diverted to turn right from A27 onto A2270, left at the Horse and Groom into High Street, turn in the station approach road and resume normal service from the Polegate Station stop.
Service 25 towards Lewes and service 26 towards Seaford will travel to the Medical Centre stop (further up High Street) then turn at the mini roundabout at the Hailsham Road intersection (or turn via Albert Place, Albert Road and Victoria Road) return via High Street to Horse and Groom traffic lights, right onto A2270 then left onto A27 to regain normal route.
Berwick - Hailsham Town services are diverted until further notice due to long term roadworks on the section of A2270 from Cophall roundabout to the A27 intersection at The Thoroughbred. These journeys will divert away from the A27 and operate from Berwick to Upper Dicker, then past Michelham Priory and Arlington Road West, A22 then Diplocks OR south on A22 to the South Road junction and resume normal route.
