Science Transit Shuttle

Due to roadworks Churchill Drive will be closed to traffic in both directions from 11 September 2017, for approximately 15 weeks.

During this time, route ST2 will drop off in Old Road close to the junction with Lime Walk and will pick up at the public bus stop in Old Road, Lime Walk bus stop. The service will also be observing the public bus stops at the junction of Old Road/Warneford Lane/Gypsy Lane.

The bus stop on Roosevelt Drive will not be served because of these roadworks.

This is due to Oxfordshire County Council installing signals at the Old Road/Churchill Drive junction and a bus gate on Roosevelt Drive as part of the Access to Headington improvements.  Apologies for any inconvenience caused
