Braintree: Roadworks to blame for bus delays
1:00pm Sunday 9th September 2012 in News
A bus passenger claims buses on one route are being cancelled frequently, leaving people stranded.
Jill Sutton, 61, uses the 131 service, run by First, up to three times a week to travel between Cressing and Braintree.
But she said timetabled buses have failed to turn up five times in the past few weeks, especially the 9.03am bus from Tye Green Post Office.
A First spokesman said: “Due to several issues of road and engineering works along the route, service 131 was inevitably affected and resulted in cases of it running late.
“An alternative of diverting the service was discussed however this would have resulted in stops being missed and areas not being served.”
