Service Disruption

 

Passengers are advised that Seagrave Road, between Seagrave and Sileby, will be closed from Tuesday 6th April 2020 until Friday 9th April 2020 inclusive. This will enable Leicestershire County Council to undertake carriageway maintenance works.

During the closure, this service will operate to a diversion route, and will not be able to serve Seagrave village and Seagrave Road in Sileby.

Residents of Seagrave village will instead have access to a temporary replacement taxi service to and from Loughborough Baxter Gate, operated by Premier Taxis Leicester. This service will be available at the following times:

  • 07:40 from Seagrave Bus Shelter to Loughborough, Baxter Gate
  • 10:10 from Seagrave Bus Shelter to Loughborough, Baxter Gate
  • 14:30 from Loughborough, Baxter Gate to Seagrave Bus Shelter
  • 17:00 from Loughborough, Baxter Gate to Seagrave Bus Shelter

 If you wish to book a place on this service, please contact the taxi operator directly on 07976 245198, by 5pm on the day before the journey.

Fares will be charged in line with those charged on Service 27. Older and disabled persons’ travel passes will be accepted for free travel on all journeys.

Please note that the replacement taxi service will not operate if a booking is not received in advance.

Leicestershire County Council apologises for any inconvenience caused to passengers.
