There will be a series of temporary bus route changes over the next few weeks as local roadworks impact on the journey to and from school.

Midland Classic 819 Handsacre to Lichfield Bus Service:

Due to roadworks in Handsacre from 8th to the 16th of May inclusive, the 819 Midland Classic service for Lichfield will not be able to serve the Uttoxeter Road bus stop. The alternative will be on the main B5014 Lichfield Road at the bus stop near the junction of Shropshire Brook Road Lichfield Bound. The service will also depart Hill Ridware 10 minutes earlier than scheduled for the duration of the works.

Solus 105 Bus Service:

Solus 105 passengers for Handsacre will need to use the same two bus stops on the Lichfield Road but will be picked up on the Rugeley bound side of the road.

Wendy Bennett, School Business Manager, said: “We seek to keep abreast of the bus services alteration in the community and this is a busy time with a lot of roadworks taking place in our locale. These changes are temporary arrangements and we will monitor students arrival times at school so that any issues with punctuality can be assessed in light of these complications.”
