1452 from Temple Fields
This journey, which then departs Harlow Bus Station at 1512 will divert via Roydon to reach Tylers Cross and will not serve any local stops in Harlow. The bus will rejoin the normal route at Ada Coles Stables in Broadley Common. This is due to the departure time clashing the end of the race on Third Avenue and Katherines Way.
Delays are expected to Service 505 as a result of this diversion.
