Shuttle bus service as Uckfield High Street roadworks disrupt services

Paul Watson reports the bus service changes will be:

From Uckfield Bus Station, all northbound services will run via Bell Lane and the by-pass.

Brighton & Hove routes 28/29 will operate northbound via Bell Lane, by-pass and A272 to Coopers Green to join the normal route.

TheSussexBus route 31 and Seaford & District route 261 will operate northbound via Bell Lane and by-pass to re-join their normal routes to Maresfield.

Manor Park Estate services


Stagecoach route 54 will NOT serve Manor Park during these works and will start or finish at the bus station instead, apart from the Uckfield Community Technology College journeys which will run.

An hourly Monday to Saturday daytime shuttle bus service will run from Manor Park to the bus station and return to Manor Park via the by-pass and Ringles Cross.

Church Coombe area services


CTLA routes 248 and 249 will not serve Church Coombe but will instead run southbound direct along London Road and the High Street, and northbound via the bypass and A272 to Coopers Green to join the normal route.

Church Coombe will be served instead by an hourly Monday to Saturday daytime shuttle bus service.

All shuttle journeys serving Church Coombe will run via the bus station, the by-pass, Ringles Cross, London Road, High Street and then as a one way loop along Church Street, The Drive, Cambridge Way and Snatts Road before returning to the bus station via London Road and the High Street.

Flat fare of £1 on shuttle bus


Passengers who board northbound at stops between High Street and Ringles Cross will need to use southbound buses or the shuttle bus to travel to Uckfield Bus Station to change buses.
