Latest Service Update on 21/12/10

Operations bulletin: Tuesday 21 December 2010 at 1430

Most services are operating normally with the following exceptions:

602 not serving Porters Park, Shenley
621/622 not serving Victor Smith Court in Bricket Wood
655 not serving Doggetts Way, St Albans (buses are operating via King Harry roundabout)
St Albans local services :
• Buses towards New Greens are operating as far as the City Hosp[ital and Batchwood Drive only
• No service to Cottonmill at the current time

The Company will make representation to the local authority about the continuing poor state of the roads served by regular bus routes. At present it is too hazardous to serve these estate roads because of the narrow width of the carriageway caused by parked cars which means that when buses have to give way on an uphill gradient, as they will invariably have to do, they cannot move away again due to lack of traction.
The Company has a team of officials conducting regular checks on the condition of roads not currently being served
