Easter weekend road closures disrupt bus routes

BUSES will not be serving the Carfax in Horsham on Good Friday, Saturday and Easter Monday due to the annual Piazza Italia event.

Metrobus has released a statement saying Routes 98 and 200 will be unable to serve Horsham Carfax between 7am and 5pm on Good Friday and Easter Monday.

Passengers wanting to use those services should go to the bus station instead.

Route 98 will only serve Albion Way before serving the bus station towards Southwater. The event is taking place around the town centre on Friday, Saturday and Monday April 22, 23 and 24 and celebrates all things Venetian.

Roads also closed due to the event are East Street, Market Square, South Street, North Street between Carfax and Copnall Way and Copnall Way from Carfax to the Waitrose roundabout.

They will be closed from 7am and 5pm on all three days and will be accessible as normal on Easter Sunday.
