Closure of Merrylees Road in Thornton
From Wednesday 25th November 2020
From Wednesday 25th November until Friday 4th December, service 26 will be affected by the closure of Merrylees Road in Thornton.
Leicestershire County Council have granted a road closure at the above location to allow for carriageway patching and associated works.
These works will be carried out on weekdays only between the hours of 07:30 and 17:30 each day for the duration.
Service 26 towards Coalville will divert via Markfield Lane, Thornton Lane and Reservoir Road to Main Street in Thornton and will then return to the normal route. This will be reversed towards Leicester.
During this time, we will be unable to serve Botcheston. Temporary bus stops will be in place on Botcheston Road on both sides to allow passengers to board and alight (near to Markfield Lane turn).
