From Sunday 26th Feb service 7 will be able to serve Oakridge Park estate.
It seems that that planned change to turn the ‘B&Q’ roundabout into a traffic light junction has changed into a much smaller scheme with some slight modifications to lanes and one of the roundabouts.
I can see why this scheme has changed as it’s obviously alot cheaper to implement, and with the main congestion problem being vehicles wanting to turn left from Saxon Street into Watling Street East being allocated their own lane it should help. Sadly it looks like the second biggest cause of Traffic buildup, the Pedestrian crossing outside Tesco, is staying. Work is due to start shortly.

Most buses are attempting to serve routes as normal but with the following exceptions:
Service 1 – Not serving Coffee Hall, Using Saxon Street instead. Also unable to serve Emberton or Lavendon, Terminating at Olney.
Service 2: Not Serving Oxley Park, Grange Farm, Willen Local Shops or Poet’s Estate in Newport Pagnell, Using Grid roads between the effected estates.
Service 4 – Unable to serve Hodge Lea, Using Great Monks Street
Service 7 – Unable to serve Stantonbury
All services will be only using Grid Roads in Milton Keynes for the rest of today’s service due to road conditions.
A few transfers in to us ate starting to appear as we start to transfer out most off our solo’s.
This bus, 3513 was collected from Watford today and will be on the streets of MK as soon as it’s been converted to single door and painted green.. Two similar buses are already done and just waiting for destination blinds.
