However, a recent query of the Government's Vehicle Operating Licensing site has revealed the cancellation of a number of services operated by Konectbus in the Great Yarmouth and Norwich areas including the 7 Caister to Norwich Bus Station service, operating via Great Yarmouth's Market Gates and Norwich's Postwick Park & Ride. This tactical withdrawal leaves First as the only operator along the Great Yarmouth to Norwich corridor after the 12th March 2017. The Dereham operator is also to cease running the 52 Acle to Cringleford and the 73 Norwich St Stephen's Street to Caister services from the same date.
Presumably this will mean the end of any of the Go Ahead subsidiaries involvement with the A47 route in which First's operation was initially challenged by Anglianbus. Konectbus began the new 7 route in late July 2016
