Bus operator Stagecoach has made several changes to its Northampton routes.

Most of the alterations came into effect from January 2.

To improve reliability, the 7.35am route 1 Overstone to Brackmills will now leave at 7.29am and run at revised times, arriving Brackmills at 8.48am. As a result, the 7.12am Northgate to Overstone and 7.47am Overstone to Northgate will be revised to improve frequency spacing between journeys.

On Mondays to Saturdays, the 7.36pm route 5 from St Giles Park will be extended to Southfields.

Due to Clipper requirements, a new route 7 journey from the Drapery to Grange Park will run daily, leaving at 9.21pm. Additionally, a new return journey from Grange Park to Drapery will run daily leaving at 9.41pm.

Several weekday afternoon route 8 journeys have been revised in order to maintain frequency as a result of route 12 timing changes.

Several weekday afternoon route 9/9A journeys have been revised to improve reliability.

The 2.45pm route 12 from Kings Heath to East Hunsbury will run at revised times to improve reliability. As a result, several other journeys will be retimed to maintain frequency.

Due to the ending of Section 106 development funding, the late night evening journeys on route 15A between The Drapery and Berrywood Road will no longer run on Mondays to Thursdays.

Sunday daytime and Friday and Saturday evening service on route 15A will continue to operate through section 106 funding as part of a partnership between Northamptonshire County Council, Northampton Borough Council, the HCA and Stagecoach Midlands.

The Monday to Friday 6.12pm Moulton Park to Northampton will extend to Berrywood Road. As a result, the 8.10pm Northampton to Acre Lane will now start at Berrywood Road at 7.37pm.

Due to change in requirements from Wincanton Transport/Sainsbury's, the 12.10am & 4.10am route 50 journeys from Swan Valley to Northampton will no longer run.

All route 51 journeys starting or finishing at Gowerton Road Asda will now start or continue to Salthouse Road Great Bear Distribution.
