End of the 61s at JPH

Today marks the last day of running the Anglianbus (operating as Konectbus) 61 from Kessingland to the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston,. The Saturday service runs between Kessingland and Leisure Way (Tesco) in north Lowestoft only.

As the 10:10 from Kessingland didn't arrive, I got this photo of Borderbus BB14BUS on the 580 to Bungay
With two of the six return journeys to the Gorleston Hospital cancelled yesterday, I was hoping to get at least one photo of the last day's operation into the JPH. At 11 am I waited at the A12 roundabout in south Gorleston for a different photo location. The 10:10 from Kessingland was due to arrive at 11:08 - it didn't! There was nothing on social media to say that it wasn't running - a terrible way to treat passengers even though the service finally ceases tomorrow.

The 11:10 from Kessingland arrives at the James Paget Hospital at lunchtime today
The 12:08 arrival did appear (on time) with Scania OmniLink 451 (AU58AUV) in charge complete with its konectbus branding. I also captured the return southbound working on the A47 to Lowestoft.

The 12:16 JPH to Kessingland 61 service leaves Gorleston on the A47 heading for Lowestoft
After today, Anglianbus/Konectbus vehicles will no longer be seen in regular service in the Great Yarmouth and Gorleston area.
