Good News For Bus Users
Back in July we were told the following bus routes were being withdrawn:
2 Southend – Rochford – Rayleigh – Rawreth – Chelmsford
Service withdrawn. This service currently runs once each way during shopping hours on Mon/Wed/Fri only.
6 Southend – Eastwood – Rayleigh – Rawreth – Chelmsford
Service withdrawn. This service currently runs once each way during shopping hours on Tue/Thu only.
R3 Rawreth/Rawreth Lane ASDA – Rayleigh Station
Service withdrawn. This service currently operates during early morning and evening commuter peak times only.
However we have just heard that the County Council will support the continuation of the affected journeys until no later than August 2013, so services will continue unchanged.
They will be reviewed again in the next 6-12 months before a decision on their longer term future is taken. The journeys will be operated by Regal Busways to the same timetable as at present, with the exception of some minor changes to timings on the R3.
So, well done to the County Council….
