‘Due to the high winds, we are seeing a few trees being blown down across our network, so sadly we are having to miss a few parts of certain routes. Delays are likely on most routes with debris and traffic travelling slower due to the conditions.
UPDATE: 9.00am Thursday 21 December
These routes are those that we are having to divert and miss stops:
comet: All stops in Little Eaton are missed, we are diverting along the A38. We will also divert from Ripley to Alfreton along the A38
Church Street, Sandiacre is closed so we cannot serve the Blue Bell stop.
Station Road in Mickleover has been closed so we cannot serve East Avenue and Bonsall Drive.
nines and ninety:
The Police have closed the road at Butterley, so all services are diverting both ways along the A38 from Ripley to Alfreton/Swanwick.
Due to a fallen tree near Mercia Marina, we are diverting on the A38 missing Findern.
Trees are down in Stanley Village so our diversion will miss all stops from High Lane West to Kings Corner.
