Bus Service Update:

I have been made aware of some problems with the college buses over the past few weeks and have been in contact with both TM Travel and Derbyshire County Council to raise our concerns about these issues.

Due to roadworks, the 513 is currently following a diversion as a section of the B6050 is closed to traffic. Unfortunately, there are also roadworks on the main Chesterfield Road which is also part of the diversion route for the B6050 road closure. According to colleagues in the Council’s Highways Hub, there have been reported tail-backs of around 2 miles this morning. There was a problem with traffic flow this morning (03/10/19) but we have been assured that this will be rectified and also alleviated by the re-opening of the B6050 tomorrow afternoon.

We have also raised our concerns about the punctuality of some buses in the last few weeks relating to service 510, 512 and 513 and TM Travel are monitoring this and may adjust timetables to reflect traffic conditions.  We will of course keep you fully updated should any changes be made.   Derbyshire County Council are monitoring this situation to ensure services operate as intended.

You may find it useful to read the college’s guidance on using the bus service (About our College/Policies/Bus Service Guidance).

I would like to thank you for your patience with the bus service recently and assure you that we are working closely with TM Travel and Derbyshire County Council to get the service back to where it should be as soon as possible.
