posted 16 Jun 2015, 04:12 by Karen Bricknell
We have been advised of revised travel arrangements due to the emergency closure of Eddington Road, Nettlestone affecting transport from this afternoon.

Our member of staff on bus duty will inform students. 
It is envisaged that transport will be back to normal for the AM journey on Thursday 18 June but we may receive a late change. Transport shall inform you of any updates.
PM Arrangements
Route 314 - students from Sandown Bay Academy for St Helens or Carpenters Road will need to board the 308 in the afternoon - one will be extended to serve Carpenters Road as required on the afternoon in question at the time of boarding. Children should ask the driver of the 308 to ensure they are boarding the correct vehicle. All other students for 314 will get the normal 314 vehicle which will depart at 1510 then operate direct to Nettlestone (Roadside Inn) via Brading, Beaper Shute / Marlborough Road / Appley Road / Pondwell to Nettlestone (1538), turn and carry on with normal route from Nettlestone Roadside Inn to Binstead (dropping at all stops 10 mins later than normal).
AM Arrangements
Route 314 to leave Binstead Cemetery Road 10 mins early at 0725, then operate normal route 10 mins early as far as Nettlestone Green (0740) then turn and operate diversion via Pondwell / Appley Road / Marlborough Road / Beaper Shute to Brading Bull Ring at normal time 0802, then on to Sandown Bay Academy.  Any students from St Helens / Carpenters Road would be able to use a specially extended 308 which would start from Oasis (Carpenters Road) at 0742 and then leave St Helens (top of Station Road) at 0747 as normal.
