Oakham Bus Station will be temporarily closed from Tuesday 2nd until Monday 15th January as a result of continuing water pipe replacement work by Severn Trent Water.
During this time services that would usually operate from the bus station on John Street will be temporarily relocated to bays outside and opposite Oakham Library (Catmos Street). These bays will be clearly marked for passengers.
The services affected by the temporary closure and relocation of Oakham Bus Station are: Service 9, 29, 47, 113, 146, 184, 185, RF1 and RF2.
Services will endeavour to operate as close to current timetables as possible, although minor delays may be possible due to temporary route diversions and traffic conditions.
Passengers should arrive at the temporary Catmos Street bus stops at their usual boarding times.
Provided that the works are completed on schedule, the bus station will reopen from Tuesday 16th January.
Additional works by Severn Trent at the eastern end of Oakham High Street mean that the bus stop at Barclays Bank will be out of use between 2nd January and 6th February 2018.
The Market Place stop on the opposite side of High Street will not be accessible from 2nd to 15th January. Passengers can board at bays outside and opposite the library until 15th January. After this passengers who would usually board at Barclays will need to board at the bus station.
One-hour parking will be permitted on John Street from 2nd to 15th January to compensate for the temporary loss of parking bays on Catmos Street. Drivers can therefore park in empty bus bays while the bus station is closed.
