A section of Aylesbury Road in Thame will be shut for at least three weeks from today after a sewer collapsed, with bus services and drivers facing disruption as a result.
Buses travelling through the area, including the 280 and 110 which link Thame, Oxford and Aylesbury, will be diverted away from the closure.
Arriva warned this is likely to add ‘significant journey time’ to the 280 service and ‘serious disruption’ can be expected.
Buses will go along the Thame bypass and then into Thame via Oxford Road, Priest End and High Street, then turning into Bell Lane and North Street to pick up as usual at the Co-op going towards Oxford.
Coming from Oxford buses will go via Thame Town Hall, North Street, Bell Lane, High Street, Priest End, Oxford Road and the bypass.
Bus stops at Queens Close and the cricket ground will not be served during the closure.
Arriva apologised for any inconvenience caused.
