Bus Service 16th-27th September

Due to road works at the Barnsdale junction on the A606, this road will be subject to a partial closure and the bus services running between Oakham and Stamford will be subject to a diversion route. This will mean that the village of Whitwell will not be served during this time. The diversion route will probably add on approximately an additional 10 minutes to each journey.

The buses operating along this route will be diverted from Oakham up to Cottesmore and down past Exton into Empingham to re-join the usual route into Great Casterton, with reciprocal arrangements the other way. As the buses will travel along Exton Road in Empingham, the bus stops near The White Horse and opposite will not be in use.

We would advise passengers from Whitwell that they can use the CallConnect service (03452638153) to book journeys into Empingham in order to meet up with bus services into Oakham and to Stamford, and may be able to book direct from Whitwell to Stamford. Passengers meeting the eligibility criteria for Voluntary Action Rutland may also be able to book journeys with VAR (01572 724705) but they do require 7 day's notice.

I have attached a copy of the Passenger Notice that will displayed at the relevant bus stops and information will be on our website.

Kind Regards.
