Pitsea- Shoeburyness

From Saturday 23 January 2016 04:00 Until Sunday 24 January 2016 02:00

Location: Pitsea to Shoeburyness

Shoeburyness - Laindon - London Liverpool Street / London Fenchurch Street

Due to Network Rail undertaking overhead line maintenance work at Southend Central and re-railing work at Leigh-on-Sea services will start from / terminate at Pitsea.

Rail replacement buses will run between Pitsea and Shoeburyness.

We will also be running bus services between Canvey Island (Leigh Beck, Haystack Corner, Link Road at the corner of Dinant Avenue and Waterside Farm). Passengers should buy a ticket from the driver. Valid bus tickets can be exchanged, within two hours of issue, at Pitsea Station Booking Office for a National Rail ticket for onwards travel (similar to when exchanging a Permit to Travel).

I know the 28 (First buses) runs along the London Road through Pitsea Broadway all the way to Southend Vic.
Arriva's 5 bus follows the same route as far as Hadleigh Road in Leigh but then diverts through Leigh Broadway so you'd be better off jumping off before then and switching to a 1 which follows the London Road to Southend Vic.

Both the 5 & 28 stop opposite the Plough in Westcliff.

B****cks!.. Just seen this. Thanks to firestorm for the heads up.

Is the other Southend Vic line running ok? or problems there also?

Maybe it will be quicker for me to switch lines and travel in a london direction to Upminster, take a shuttle train to Romford and switch, as apose to a replacement bus service from Pitsea to Southend.
