ROADS will be closed in Shipston-on-Stour for the next week and a half for essential resurfacing work, disrupting traffic in the town centre.
Church Street will be closed to traffic from Wednesday to Friday during the first phase of work.
The second phase is from Monday 14th to Friday 18th October and will involve the closure of the gyratory, particularly West Street and Mill Street.
All roads will be open on the weekend.
Pedestrians will be able to access the buildings along the road at all times and diversions will be in place for both cars and buses.
This week, the Stagecoach 50 service between Stratford and the town will use Tilemans Lane, Darlingscott Road and West Street to access the town centre gyratory.
Passengers can use the pair of bus stops on Darlingscott Road near to the junction with High Street as an alternative.
The 50A will use the length of Darlinsgscott Road and not serve Tilemans Lane.
The Johnsons 23 service between Lower Quinton and Ilmington into Shipston will also use the length of Darlingscott Road and passengers again will need to use bus stops on this road.
Next week, the 50 and 50A from Stratford will again use Tilemans Lane and Darlingscott Road.
Any 50 bus approaching the town from the south will use Furze Hill Road, Banister Way and Hanson Avenue to access Darlingscott Road.
The 50A will exit Brailes and travel through Sutton under Brailes and Burmington to access the A3400 and then use the same roads as the 50 bus to access Darlingscott Road.
The arrangements for the 23 bus service in this second phase will be the same as in phase one.
Warwickshire County Council and the bus operators regret the inconvenience to passengers but described these diversions as “unavoidable and necessary”.
All services should return to normal from Saturday 19 October 2013.
