BETTER PUBLIC TRANSPORT LINKS FOR LEISTON AND ALDEBURGH - BUT NOT FOR SNAPE


Since early July, First has run its service 64 basically every hour, six days a week, from Ipswich and Woodbridge via Wickham Market and Saxmundham to Leiston and Aldeburgh. The bus/train connections to and from both Ipswich and Lowestoft at Saxmundham have also improved, with 19-23 minutes allowed for the transfer between the rail station and the railway bridge bus stop in North Entrance.


These are improvements for which ESTA has campaigned. The minus side is that Snape, Tunstall and to a lesser extent Knodishall have lost out.  Not only Snape village, but the major tourist attraction of Snape Maltings are now served just three times a day  on five days a week by First; while the Suffolk County Council sponsored service 62 provides just 3-4 trips a day between - variously - Snape, Wickham Market, Framlingham and Woodbridge.


ESTA  will be pressing for additional bus links for Snape and Tunstall in particular, either commercially operated or council-sponsored.
