Urgent - Changes to school buses from 4th-31st October

We have been notified by the School Transport Team at DCC that a road closure along Station Road in Hemyock will affect a number of school bus routes from 4th-31st October. 

The buses affected are:

UFF 6: All students from Station Road to be picked up at Dobles Garage or Millhayes.  Pick ups from Westown and Southwood farm to make way to Culmstock School. All Hemyock pick ups will be 10 minutes earlier to allow for diversion route

UFF 25: Hemyock Square students to be picked up at Dobles Garage or Millhayes. Pick up from Blackpit to make way to Culmstock school or Millhayes. All students from Culmstock Church to make way to Culmstock school. Hemyock pick ups will be 10 minutes earlier to allow for diversion route

For all return afternoon trips we will be running the same locations for dropping off.

These arrangements will be reviewed on a weekly basis whilst DCC liaise with the road closure contractor to see how far the closure has moved up Station Road.

Note - the roadworks will commence by the Blackdown practice so The Square/ Logan Way cannot be accessed with a coach.  The closure will then move up towards Millhayes.  Once the closure extends past Dobles Garage the buses will have to turn right at the depot at which point UFF9 will be affected, and the others will return back to normal.

Please note that whilst the closure is in place students from different buses may be mixed in order to prevent two coaches meeting in Culmstock.

DCC Transport apologise for the inconvenience caused and also the late notice, but they were only given details of the arrangements today.
