Bus Service- Developments

Following the protests re the loss of the 580 service reported earlier there have been several developments.

First, as a stop gap measure, from next Monday 27th September, Mondays to Fridays, the 004 bus from Norwich to Harleston will divert via Denton. It will come up Trunch Hill, pick up at Chapel Corner at 9.02 am and then turn round to return down Trunch Hill on its way to Harleston. The return 004 service from Harleston will leave at 14.40. In addition to the 004, a taxi bus will operate, on Tuesdays and Fridays only, to pick up from Harleston at 11.30am to take passengers back to Denton. Note there will be no service to Bungay.

Our district councillor, Murray Gray, has taken up the issue and successfully moved a motion at last week’s council meeting deploring the lack of consultation and calling on Anglian Busses and the County Council to work with local parish councils to resolve the issue.

A special meeting of all the interested parties is to be held next month.
