Services 145 & 142 - Being diverted due to road closure in Delce Road

Due to a building collapse in Delce Road which has lead to a complete closure of the road, buses 142, and 145 are currently being diverted.

Nu-Venture service 142 is being diverted via City Way, to St Williams Way, then to normal route at Fairlead Road. A temporary bus stop will be set up at the junction of Fairlead Road and St Williams Way.

Arriva service 145  is being diverted via City Way, Onslow Road to Delce Road then back on normal route.

These diversions are to take place until further notice.

Service 327 - February 6 to 26 2017. 
Service on diversion due to roadworks in Rainham area.

From Monday 6 February until Sunday 26 February the 327 will not be serving the stops at The Angel, Ellison Way and Tilbury Road in Station Road, Rainham.

This is due to roadworks taking place in the Lower Rainham Road between Station Road and Otterham Quay Lane which will be totally closed during this period. This is within Kent County Council’s section of Lower Rainham Road.

The 327 service will be diverted via Otterham Quay Lane, Wakeley Road, Taswell Road, and William Street to Station Road.

During the works please go to the nearest bus stop in Station Road by Henry Street.

Medway Council and Chalkwell apologises for any inconvenience that this may cause which is beyond our control.

For details about the road works visit Kent County Council’s website or call 03000 41 81 81.
