The service alterations due to be introduced are as follows:

  • 7a Newport - Muxton - Donnington - Trench - Hadley – Wellington: This route will replace route 897 to provide one morning peak journey from Newport and Muxton to Telford College and Wellington on College Days only, with the return journey in the afternoon peak. The 897 will be withdrawn.

  • 11/11a Telford - Lawley - Wrekin Retail Park - Arleston – Wellington: The frequency of this route is being reduced to hourly, however, as a direct result of feedback from customers in Lawley, the service is being extended to serve Wrekin Retail Park (for Tesco) and Wellington, with connections on route 15 at Wellington Bus Station to the Princess Royal Hospital. The route will also start serving the new housing on Bryce Way and Proctor Avenue, provide better commuter links to Telford Central railway station at peak times of day on Monday to Friday, and offer a quicker and more efficient link between Telford and Arleston.
