The Street, Hascombe

Update 14 August: Road Closure - 42 (Compass Bus)

From 19 August for three to four weeks: The Street in Hascombe closed, to enable Thames Water to replace the water main, between Mare Lane and The White Horse pub.

Due to the nature of local roads and the length of detour that would be required, it will be impossible to maintain service 42 (Compass Bus) in its normal form. A replacement service will operate for the duration of the closure in three separate sections and some direct links cannot be provided due to circumstances beyond the control of Compass Bus.

The three replacement service sections are:

  • Guildford to Busbridge (Home Farm Road) via Farncombe and Godalming
  • Godalming town centre to Hascombe (Mare Lane) using a minibus - a free service
  • Hascombe (White Horse) to Cranleigh via Dunsfold, Alfold Crossways and Elmbridge

Route 42 (Compass Bus) - Temporary timetable (PDF)

Compass Bus and Surrey County Council are grateful to Thames Water for funding of the minibus service to allow the area of Hascombe at the north end of the road closure to continue to receive a bus link to Godalming.
