Stanway residents have told me repeatedly they are “frustrated over the inefficient 65 bus route” connecting Stanway with the town centre, station and Highwoods.

On behalf of local residents, I shall work to arrange a meeting with Steve Hartman, Operating Manager at First Essex Buses to discuss these issues, also asking again for the reinstatement of the stop in St. John’s Street.

Following on from our local Conservative manifesto, I will also ask about any plans to introduce green energy powered buses (gas/electric/hybrid GPS) in Colchester, helping to reduce harmful emissions throughout our Borough.
