Buses operated by Brighton & Hove are being run from Brighton to Newhaven inland instead of the south coast road from 3pm today (Monday December 23) due to bad weather.

The 12/12A will operate via Lewes Road, the A27 and A26 between Brighton Old Steine and Denton Corner in both directions.

Churchill Square and North Street will be served as normal and buses towards Eastbourne will serve stop D at Old Steine (not the Sea Life Centre).

The normal route will be operated between Denton Corner and Eastbourne.

A shuttle service with single-deckers will operate between Churchill Square and Newhaven Denton Corner along the A259 via the North Peacehaven loop replacing all of services 12/12A/12X/14/14C along on this section of route, although at a reduced frequency.

A company spokesperson said: “We regret that we will be unable to serve the County Hospital and Eastern Road on these buses.

“Please be aware that there is also significant traffic congestion across the city and beyond and this is causing major delays to services.

“We will endeavour to operate service 14 journeys to/from Hangleton as normal, and service 27 too, but these may also be subject to change if the weather conditions worsen even further.

“We regret any inconvenience that may be caused.”
