The situation at Drusillas roundabout has improved considerably with virtually no delays currently, as there is a 'roundabout' of sorts now functionning. With that in mind, from Saturday 25th September our services 126, 25 and 26 will resume their normal operation to and from Berwick Station, although running via Common Lane (estimated until January 2022) will mean they may run a few minutes later than timetabled.
Services 40 and 44 operate via Common Lane to A27 and then follow that through to Wilmington and their normal routes.
The lay-bys just in Alfriston Road are suspended and we will stop at Drusillas entrance or opposite it as a temporary measure.
There will be changes to two of our services this autumn:
Service 25 will have a revised timetable from 6th November and no longer serve Firle Village (stopping only at Firle Gates), Selmeston Road (Eastbourne) and the District General Hospital grounds (stopping instead on Kings Drive outside the Hospital).
Service 38 will be withdrawn after operating on 21st October.
Service 25 has resumed operating along the drive to Charleston Farmhouse. Due to roadworks at Earwig Corner service 25 is currently diverted through Cuilfail Tunnel and does NOT serve Firle Post Office or Glynde village.
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.
