Oct 2- Changes to the Nu-Venture 131 service

With effect from 2 October until 10 December Nu-Venture service 131 will NOT be serving the bus stops in Berengrave Lane, and Childscoft Road.

This is due to Southern Gas Network roadworks taking place in Berengrave Lane which will be closed in phases while a main gas main is being replaced.

Nu-Venture Service 131 will be diverted via Lower Rainham Road, and Station Road while this works are going on, and unfortunately there are no other suitable diversion routes available.

Please proceed to bus stops in Lower Rainham Road (Army and Navy stop) or to Station Road (Henry Street)

Medway Council and Nu-Venture apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause, but these urgent gas main works are totally beyond our control.
