Good News! Update re: Closure of Aborfield Road 18th Nov – 31st Jan 2020

Reading Buses have agreed to turn the 3 and 3b around at Church Lane at the stop north of the junction.

They’ve advised passengers will need to stand at the stop in the direction of travel for the existing route. – Passengers can also use the bus stops south of the Magpie and Parrot if more convenient.

Reading buses will be signing the changes. Pls contact reading buses if you require further clarification.
