New First Norwich timetables released

The 11A is withdrawn and partly replaced by a revised service 12.
The timetables for the revised First Norwich network from September 20th have been finalised and released very recently, which clarifies some of the questions raised from the statement released by First.

On the Pink Line, the 11A is withdrawn in its entirety - Cozens Hardy Road will no longer be served by a bus. The 11 is retained and will run every twenty minutes along the route as current - via Linacre Avenue in Sprowston and via Roundhouse Park at the opposite end of the route.

The Cringleford Village service, previously served by the 11A, is now picked up by a heavily revised 12. Also running every twenty minutes through Sprowston from Wroxham, a combined frequency with the 11 allows a ten minute frequency along Wroxham Road. Furthermore, the 12 is extended to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital via Cringleford.

The Green Line 14 and 14A will no longer operate between Wroxham and Dussindale, leaving Rackheath and Salhouse at the hands of Konectbus. As a result, there is no longer a 14A and Dussindale is served every 30 minutes by the 14, with a ten minute layover by Desborough Way. The overall frequency of the 14, 15 and 15A is generally the same as currently. A Sunday service is retained on the 14 as far as Dussindale. All Green Line services now follow a more direct route into Dereham, with buses to Harts Farm, Silfield and North Wymondham being withdrawn.

The 27 finishes earlier on a weekday, and there are changes to
the Blue Line 25 and 26.
On the Blue Line 25 and 26, the overnight service is withdrawn - the last buses are now just before midnight. An approximate 7 minute combined frequency will begin again with the start of the new University term. On the associated 27, the 15:10 journey from Riverside is now the final Monday to Friday journey, with a 16:10 operating on Saturday only.

Purple Line 35 journeys are amended by up to 5 minutes on some morning journeys to aid punctuality. The 18:35 journey, the final one of the day, is withdrawn as well as the 19:06 return back to Norwich. A similar situation is in place on the 36, with minor tweaks to the peak timetables.
