Closure of Upham Road - Further Update

Sunday, September 16 2018

The road works below were expected to finish at the end of September but unfortunately have been extended again until further notice.

We have been advised by Swindon Borough Council that Upham Road in Walcot West will be closed for road repairs from Monday 18th June for up to 12 weeks.

During this closure services 17 & 17A will not be able to serve Walcot West.

Buses will be diverted between Whitbourne Avenue and Groundwell Road via Queens Drive to Magic Roundabout and Drove Road instead of Upham Road, and vice versa.

The following stops will not be served - Churchfields School, Woodside Avenue, South View Avenue, Immanuel Church, Holy Cross Junior School and Walcot Road.

Passengers are advised to use the nearest alternative stops at The Merlin (in Groundwell Road) or New College (on Queens Drive).

We apologise for any inconvenience caused by circumstances beyond our control.
