Closure of Highway Road in Thurmaston
From 10th May 2021
From 10th May for 7 days, Highway Road in Thurmaston will be closed for maintenance work between the hours of 9am and 3pm, affecting service 6.
As a result, this service will be operating a diversion during this time and will only be able to serve stops in this location in one direction (Leicester City bound).
Service 6 towards Asda will continue along Newark Road (A607) and turn right at Asda roundabout onto Barkby Thorpe Lane. The bus stop positioned before the roundabout will be for boarding, alighting and any waiting time if needed.
Towards Leicester, the service will loop back on itself via the roundabout onto Barkby Thorpe Road, towards Newark Road (A607) and take the first left onto Newark Road. Buses will then turn left onto Checkland Road, follow round onto Sandiacre Drive and then continue back on the normal route.
The works will be suspended over the weekend of Saturday 15th May and Sunday 16th May, where buses will follow their normal route.
See a map of the diversion below.
