Notice from Leicestershire County Council

Number 27 Bus

Further to the community engagement events which took place in July with regard to the proposed changes to service 27 (Loughborough to Thurmaston), we have been considering the comments provided at the events prior to finalising the proposals.

Although we indicated that we were working towards a start date for the revised service of 27th August, it has been brought to our attention that roadworks are scheduled to take place on Seagrave Road between Seagrave and Sileby during the time that the revised service would commence operation. These roadworks would require the service to be temporarily rerouted from the outset, which would be confusing for passengers.

As a consequence, the decision has been taken to delay the start date for the revised service. As it is intended that school pupils will be transported on the revised service, we are working towards an anticipated start date of Monday 21st October – the first Monday after the October half-term break.

From Monday 21st October, the service will operate between Sileby and Loughborough only, apart from the first Monday to Friday journey which will begin in Thurmaston and the last Monday to Friday journey which will end in Thurmaston. The service will include a school journey to Humphrey Perkins school in the morning and back in the afternoon on school days only.

I hope this provides you with some clarity about the proposed way forward for service 27.
