The diversion route is as follows:

From Reading towards Newbury: Buses will serve all stops as normal until reaching Theale Green. Following this stop they will then run non-stop via the M4, A34 and A4 to Cropper Close; where they will return to the normal route.

From Newbury towards Reading, buses will run as normal until Cropper Close. Following these stops, buses will then run fast to Theale via the A4, A34 and M4, resuming the normal route at Theale Green.
