First Buses has announced a number of changes to its flagship X1 service, which runs from Peterborough to Norwich and Norwich to Lowestoft.
Owing to the road works at Postwick on the A47 near Norwich, the service will be split to run in two parts from Sunday, July 27. The Postwick road works are scheduled to last 18 months, so this change is being introduced on a temporary basis.
Passengers travelling across the split route will be able to transfer at Norwich bus station, which should minimise any potential delays. Through tickets are available.
Steve Wickers, commercial director for First East England, said: “The X1 is our flagship route and we have had to make these changes to maintain punctuality following the road works at Postwick.
“The existing high quality X1 fleet of vehicles will continue to be used on this service, and the small number of previous generation X1 vehicles are in the process of being fitted with free WiFi, as these vehicles will also still be used on some journeys. We will continue to provide a reliable, value for money service to people in Norfolk and Suffolk.”
