Nine Mile Ride closure

3 months ago Fri 4th Jun 2021

On Thursday 10 June, Nine Mile Ride will be closed at the junction of Park Lane meaning leopard 3 buses to/from Wokingham will be on diversion. This is due to construction works by Balfour Beatty and is expected to last a minimum of 8-10 weeks. 

Journeys between Reading and Arborfield Green will not be affected. There is an outline below of the diversion in each direction - timetables are available on the leopard 3 service page now and PDFs will be available shortly.

Due to the diversion, buses will not use the Hogwood Lane Industrial Estate, Robinson Crusoe, Coleshill Farm, California Country Park, Manor Park Drive, California Crossroads Petrol Station and Ratepayers Hall Bus stops. The closest bus stops to the section that buses are unable to use are either Biggs Lane or Barkham Ride East.
