InterConnect Launch in Skegness

Yesterday saw the re-launch of Stagecoach in Lincolnshire's flagship InterConnect 6 service, linking Skegness with Lincoln to an hourly frequency. Introduced were a number of brand new Scania/Enviro double deckers, replacing some Volvo B7TLs with Wrightbus Eclipse Gemini buses - which were the last ones to be ordered by RoadCar before they were purchased by Stagecoach.

Full details of the vehicles are contained in the next LEYTR (which should come through your letter box within the next fortnight), including fleet, chassis and body numbers as well as the inside specification and the local vehicle movements to accommodate these new double deckers.

InterConnect 6 was the first route to comprise what is now Lincolnshire County Council's transport jewel. A network of services criss-cross one of England's most sparse counties. Most are operated by Stagecoach, though local operators Brylaine Travel & Norfolk Green operate some routes. TransLinc operate the majority of connecting demand-responsive minibus services.
