Call Connect
« on: December 22, 2016, 05:16:24 PM »
I have recently noticed that the Peterborough and Stamford Call Connect services are now worked solely by a new company Transport Connect, Sheepwash Lane, Barrowby, Grantham Lincs. I presume this is the new Translinc now it has been sold off yet again. By the way Sheepwash Lane, Barrowby is the slip road between the A52 and A1.

As I understand it, this is more a re-incarnation of the original Translinc as it is owned by LCC and has been set up to cover work covered by Kier (the last owners of the old Translinc) when they closed the operation down.

Marcus,

Is this the one? I have seen it a few times this week.

Yes, that's the one Phil. I think this vehicle has replaced the Centrebus vehicle 215.
