temporary changes to leopard 3 due to roadworks

3 weeks ago Wed 31st Jan 2024

Due to Wokingham Council carrying out essential work on Nine Mile Ride near California Crossroads, the road will be closed in both directions from Monday 12 February until early May 2024 and we will be unable to run our leopard 3 route along Nine Mile Ride as usual and it will be diverted as follows:

towards Wokingham

Following the Marino Way stop on Nine Mile Ride Extension, buses will continue onto Biggs Lane and then turn right onto Langley Common Road. They will then continue until reaching The Bull where they will turn onto Barkham Street and run to the Barkham Ride East stop. Here the bus will use the roundabout to turn around, resuming the normal leopard 3 route as they return along Barkham Street towards Wokingham. Buses will stop at all bus stops along this route.

Buses will be unable to serve Robinson Crusoe, Coleshill Farm, California Country Park, Manor Park Drive and California Crossroads during this diversion.

towards Reading

Buses will run along Barkham Ride as usual until reaching the Barkham Ride - East stop. Here they will turn around at the roundabout, and then run back along Barkham Ride towards The Bull, where they will then turn left onto Barkham Road and Langley Common Road before turning left onto Biggs Lane, returning to their normal road from the Marino Way bus stop. Buses will stop at all bus stops along this route.

Due to the closure of Nine Mile Ride, buses cannot serve Robinson Crusoe, Coleshill Farm, California Country Park, Manor Park Drive and Ratepayers Hall.

Please allow additional journey time when travelling between Arborfield Green and Wokingham.

We apologise for any inconvenience or delay that this diversion may cause to your journey during these essential works.

This diversion will only affect leopard 3 buses between Arborfield and Wokingham. Buses that finish their journey in Arborfield, Shinfield or at Royal Berks Hospital will not be affected by this diversion and will call at all stops as normal.
