We have been advised of urgent changes to the number 29 bus service, serving Crowborough from Monday 1st June.
From 1 June, Hurtis Hill and Sheep Plain at Crowborough will be closed for various works. As a consequence, Brighton & Hove bus routes between Crowborough and Uckfield will be unable to serve Sheep Plain, Hurtis Hill, Whitehill Road and the southern part of Croft Road. The following stops will not be served:
· Croft Road near the junction of Southview Road/outside United Church
· Whitehill Road near Bricklayers Arms
· Bottom of Whitehill Road (Rose Court)
· Windlesham Manor
Students using these stops will need to use alternative stops during the period of the road closure which it is anticipated will last for three weeks with the bus service reverting to normal by Monday 22 June.
The stop on the northern section of Croft Road, near the junction of Church Road (opposite/outside Clifford Court), will still be served during this period.
