Replacement shuttle bus when Church Street closed

Dear Blogger

Replacement shuttle bus service 29th June to 3rd July

Due to the forthcoming road closures on Church Street, the normal 576 bus service connecting Ruyton XI Towns with Oswestry and Shrewsbury will not be able to travel through the village. As there are many individuals in the parish who rely on the bus, the Parish Council has been pushing both Arriva and Shropshire Council to arrange an alternative service for a number of weeks. So we are very relieved to finally confirm that there will indeed be a replacement shuttle bus service connecting Oswestry and Ruyton XI Towns from Monday 29th June to Friday 3rd July. PLEASE NOTE: the shuttle service will terminate at School Road in the village, and it will NOT connect Ruyton XI Towns with Shrewsbury. You can view the replacement shuttle service timetable here.

The Parish Council is arranging for the shuttle bus timetable to be displayed at bus stops and notice boards around the parish, and there are also posts on the Council website and local Facebook page. Please feel free to share this information with anyone who may benefit.

The Parish Council would like to thank everyone involved for helping to keep the community connected during the road closures.
