Service Alterations Registered ~ January 2016

Firstly, as this is my first post of 2016, can I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous new year. Now down to the blogging and a post to let you now that today's Notices and Proceedings Report, issued by the East of England Traffic Commissioner earlier this morning, contains nothing of interest regarding our local area

Nevertheless the full East of England Traffic Commissioner's Notices and Proceedings Report can be viewed HERE

However, a query on the VOSA site this morning revealed Anglianbus are 'reorganising' their local services with timetables being amended on the following routes from 22nd February 2016:-
  • 87/88/BH274  Durban Close, Halesworth to Newmarket Road, Norwich
  • 7/7A  Blofield Heath and Great Yarmouth/Great Yarmouth College
  • 88A/88B/BH272  Halesworth and Southwold

Additionally the route, stopping places and timetable of the 61/61A/61B/61C services between Bungay and Lowestoft are also to be altered from the same date

The operator is also cancelling a number services operating in the area to take effect from 22nd February 2016. These include the 85 between Loddon and Norwich and the 86 between Beccles and Norwich Bus station. Both are provided under contract to Norfolk County Council with Simonds becoming the new operator.

Others to go comprise part of service 7 between Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft which will see the route revert to its original Great Yarmouth to Norwich service. The 61 between Wrentham and Southwold will also be axed.



  1. Do you know if it means the 61 will no longer go from Lowestoft-Southwold? Or Lowestoft to Yarmouth?

  2. The 61 will continue from Southwold to Kessingland to Lowestoft to Great Yarmouth to Norwich without a change of bus required The Lowestoft to Kessingland part will be behalf hourly.
